Title: the finishing touch
“finishing touch” is a frequently used word, which comes from a famous article in “Zhuangzi’s carefree Journey”: “the reason why a great craftsman is a teacher is not his wages, but his ingenuity.” This kind of “ingenuity” is the ingenuity of the details in the work. This is the reason why they all say that “the root of a hundred metaphors lies in one point”.
The finishing touch plays an important role in our lives. For example, the smallest stroke or point in a painting can make the whole picture alive. In an article, a key word or sentence can also make the reader appreciate more meaning. Therefore, the “finishing touch” can sometimes be used to describe the beauty of something.
If one wants to write an article or draw a wonderful painting, one should not only have wonderful ideas and scientific composition, but also work hard on the details to achieve a good work with unique ingenuity. The finishing touch is like the soul of the work, the high condensation of the connotation and spirit of the work, and the result of the author’s long-term training and efforts.
No matter what form of works of art, can reflect the importance of finishing touch. For example, the beautiful voice in an opera can make people linger; in a film, if a majestic scene appears instantly in the eyes of the audience, then the film will be more impressive.
In short, the finishing touch can make the connotation of the work more profound, make the form more perfect, and it is also the greatest catharsis of the author’s feelings. No matter where and when, this spirit is always one of the most important factors in our creative life, and it is an important means and way to improve the creative pursuit and strength.
