carried along


A good deal of the day is mine, so,
a studio day.
There is a canvas on the easel that is already started, it needs developing.It is a reproduction of the ink wash drawing shown yesterday.
I stare at it, I work on it and wash it all off, do it again and wash it off. 
I read.
I change the music.
I make tea.
I think.

I begin to smear on paint with one hand
then more and squeeze out more paint
rubbing with a paint hardened rag helps
this definitely not planned or expected

Renoir said he felt like a cork in a stream
I think I know a bit of that
