Impulse 101: An essay about art, the internet and everything
In an informal essay about art it is acceptable to include your own feelings and behavior as you looked at the painting. You can include information like how long you studied the painting, whether you compared it to other paintings in the gallery, whether or not you made a sketch of the work, how the painting made you feel, etc. If the painting makes you feel sad, then explain what evokes that feeling. Is it the colors the artist used? Is it the figure's pose, or the facial expression, etc.?

I sat in front of a still life for an hour and a half and drew it.
