i fell in love with this unfinished Edgar Degas painting called "the woman at a window" 1871-72. for some reason this unfinished background and the warm colour of it is very eye pleasing. moreover, degas loved experimenting with technique and this picture was made with paint drained of its oil and thinned with turpentine, creating an effect similar to watercolour.
