A.M. puttering to the studio, arranging my notes for the oil I am working on into some sort of order. I find it easier to divide to divide a picture into “passages” and group the notes under the various headings—“Sky”—chimney groups—Bridge area—the water with its ice cakes—the battered part of the house—the extreme foreground with its bank, trees & birds & birds, etc.
