You wonder why this title for this painting??? and what does it mean???  I absolutely love to look up words on  Its the perfect place to look for alternate words that mean the same thing or have similar meanings.  Perspicuity means ~


2 transparencyPerspicuity, perspicacity are both derived from a Latin word meaning “to see through.” Perspicacity refers to the power of seeing clearly, to clearness of insight or judgment: a person of acute perspicacity; the perspicacity of his judgment. Perspicuity refers to something that can be seen through, i.e., to lucidity, clearness of style or exposition, freedom from obscurity: the perspicuity of her argument.”
With this painting, it has layers, all which are clearly seen!  Perspicuity is a powerful word and I feel this painting needed a powerful title to show all its layers.  I hope you enjoy the video as it shows you the basics of its creation.  Below are the final images of the piece.
