This particular painting was very fun and colorful to me because of the time and effort he put into the piece. Since this is a painting we have to remember how every small detail matters, and until a specific color is blended and mixed correctly into a particular shade it can not be used. The boy is knelt down glancing into a pool of water with his reflection looking back at him. Since Michelangelo chose to use dark shades in this painting, it was even harder to be able for the observer to identify the water at the bottom; so he had to make sure it was very visible. This painting is beautiful and truly inspiring if you take the time to look at its importance. Michelangelo is a real artist.
