The Da Vinci code a piece of s*t but Magdalene is Mary in the important sense, that of the heart.

Palestrina. The purity of Quattrocento Italian painting, translucent layers on a gesso ground, became painting on brown perhaps owing to the Reformation and its notion that there is no salvation through works. The gesso cannot be pure white.

Palestrina, nonetheless. The polyphony of Fra Angelico’s layers.

Tiziano Vecelli (Titian) said, svelatura, trento o quaranto, glazes [of colour], 30 or 40, but I say, grisaille, 30 or 40.

The color study above shows me that red needs to be in the mid tones.

The Old Masters knew all about Cubist planes, for a plane of shadow here is painted by me with a round bristle brush to unify her shoulder and her leg, and it overlaps her bikini top, belly and shorts. It is then answered with another plane of purest white that joins her arm with the left twisty torso, which expresses the Chakra of Joy (Freuden) in Sorrow (Klagende).
