    Honing art to just 5 steps sounds simplistic. The way these steps are orchestrated is where the level of that art is realised. I guess that's true of creativity across the board. Could a poor Lowry be viewed, just a kids lunchtime doodle? The steps of beauty really rest in the beholder's eye.

    Take care.
