It was a Fairfield Porter-like setting, fabulous.

"The Color Narrative:
Colors that tell and remember and
represent the story of a place."

While tilting the board and rolling the set color around:
"Keep it moving; keep it wet; washing it around,
wet over without wetting into the paper.
Keep it tilted, top to bottom,
dark to light."

"Let the paint lead the drawing."

"You're writing in color. How can you forget this day?"

"Yellow on the clapboards;
now it's officially Porterized."
(Fairfield Porter)
