ignore the music track, listen to the commentaries, and watch how picasso kicks a precious pretty line's *ss out of a drawing or painting if it is in the way of capturing the visual story.

This video shows Picasso painting. It is the most worthwhile video about an artist I have ever seen because it shows the aartists paint -- redo -- and paint again. His genius shows.
