I Scrape My Palette

Color: accelerated tests: for longevity; for embrittlement;
for yellowing. alizarin crimson, compared to new reds.
celadon green, celestial blue, Chinese vermillion,
Chinese yellow, cobalt black, blue and ultramarine.

Additive: comparisons, complementary, diffraction,
flat, influence of, on perspective, juxtaposition of
and light, matching, mixed, opaque and transparent.
primary; secondary, stability, as a technical tool, tertiary

And variations in hue: overpainting and underpainting.
enough. I want to paint again already. zinc white,
actions of

a paper season
through my window today
brush on canvas
