I try to discuss this as often as i can at work. Implying detail can be far powerful than putting every little thing in. Artist such as Turner, Degas and Rembrandt only needed to mention that there was something there for our brains to fill in the blanks.
In a way to relates to the uncanny valley, rather than hitting every possible detail if we can trick the brain into ‘believing’ theres more detail we may get away with it.
I found matthew cooks work to be just this – implying enough detail for you to fill in the blanks. Amazing paintings of life , during battle and outside of in Afghanistan.
