3:07 PM: today i started a small gouache as a study for oil interior 6. i'll complete it tomorrow, and perhaps make a second one to work out the composition which, in this one, is starting to look too busy. it will be more lively coloristically than the last few, and cropped more tightly than the earlier oil interiors. less descriptive, more patterned. i'm tempted to jump right into the already stretched 32x32' canvas tomorrow. but i know in my kishkes that i need to work out the color relationships, shapes and overall composition first.
