Thank you for checking in with me again this week!
Another challenge this past week! Although it did not start as a challenge, but more a sketch of an idea that I had on my mind for awhile. I took a small canvas and used up leftover acrylic paint from a painting I had just completed. I started with the yellow 11X14 canvas and sketched in a guitar player on stage. I had the idea of bright lights and reflections, more of a modern art piece. I thought I would just practice. And it really was until the lights and backdrop of the stage were lit up and a performer appeared!
I had a great time figuring out the lighting and where the reflections would fall on stage and the performer. I was thinking the backdrop would be a curtain. I decided it should not be solid and dark, so I added lots of color and reflections bouncing off the background. The perspective is from stage right, it adds more interest to the subject and for the viewer. The angle of the guitar and mic as well as the performer, was a bit of a challenge, but came together in the end.
This piece sold on the very day I finished it!
Thank you everyone!
