Chopin’s Nocturne OP. 9 No.1

A lot of bouncing around with color looking to fill in the, I guess the best name for it is a Rothko staff.   A lot of colors are used and mixed and there is not a clear logic. at less not tonight.  I think the color goes down sometimes just to move the work further somewhere, anywhere but where it is now.   When I paint, I try to keep my thoughts on the work and not the other stuff we think about when we are not trying to think about, but it just happens.  That is why the paint goes down, and then the judgment begins and that followed  up with more paint, just a different color; and more decision making.  A lot of times the wet rag then comes out and it all gets scrubbed away.    Still a long way to go on this base and there is no plan, no idea what will be done next, and no direction.  All is normal.
