Sure, it's easy. If it's a figure, how good is it drawn? Are the arms
the same size, etc? A still life--same criteria. An abstract--how good
are the relationships: colors? forms? Unusual subject matter: well
that's a matter of taste, but you could ask: does this object make you
feel good? Or would you rather look at something else?
Just remember a simple point: you want to keep looking at good things
and want to look away from bad things. Now that statement's not as dumb
as it sounds! Unfortunately!
