Added just a few square inches of color on my picture of the town.  Didn't have time.  Had to clean the CR.

"a picture -- before being a war horse, a female nude, or some anecdote -- is essentially a flat surface covered with colors assembled in a particular order."  -- Maurice Denis.  History of Modern Art by Arnason

"Holy Women Near the Tomb" by Maurice Denis
There is no room for hesitation.  Decisiveness is absolutely necessary.  Hesitation ruins part of my works.  The practice of staring at my subject for a very long time and staring at my work for another extended period before proceeding is very effective.  Observation and mental processing is very important.  It is essential for building a coherent composition and color expression.
