Where did I get the idea that 230 year old Classical Music needed to be painted black and brown. Maybe it is from looking at 200-year-old Mozart manuscripts. This music by Mozart is also known as the Turkish March, the English translation of Alla Turca. Actually, I decided to use brighter colors once I listened to the astonishing speed of this music. I should have known that Rondo refers to music that is to be played fast, maybe really fast. For example here is a video from the Summer Night Concert 2014 with The Vienna Philharmonic with Lang Lang on the piano:
I made the choice of colors quickly because of the tight production schedule with this artwork. I picked blue to start this music. I than move up in intensity to the color red, and then back down to end with a light green. This artwork has a random look and placement to the colors, and again, that is because I needed to move along. Where needed I will adjust on the fly. So far I am also not feeling or seeing a personality in this artwork, which is disconcerting, considering how major this painting is. What that means is that I have no straight path to complete this work. That also means everything is up in the art and that I will be making some bad choices that I either live with or change. Change is always my first priority. So it goes, and so will I.
