In the Gray Greek Vase, cited schematically from a classical model, figures on horses, attic models, written in oil in shades of gray over the entire surface of an amphora; graphic leaves resemble Matisse appliqués.
Wood can divert a significant part of the canvas to the study of the complex texture of a vase from which a faded flower fell, borrow a decorative motif from a shower curtain in a childhood home, portray a vessel painted by dinosaurs that Kusaka made.
