BLOWING UP A STORM – ACRYLIC PAINTING

Regulars with a good memory might recall other, earlier versions of this. One of those versions has been propped on the wall of the studio, taunting me to do better. Hopefully with this I may have, but is it good enough? Another studio residency will no doubt tell me.

I tackled this with a palette knife to try and impart some of the energy I felt was lacking in earlier versions. I also rearranged the players, particularly the pianist and bassist and tried to keep the colour range tighter. Other than that, the theme remains the same: a theme I like. I might even try a companion piece, but first I have a couple of commissions to do which may take a while.

  1. Nice “Blowing Up a Storm Take” did you use more Brown, Yellow and Blue in the background of this one, I think I remember more primaries in your last one. Every take of this seems to have turned out well.

    • Thanks Shawn. Well spotted. I thought that the older variations involved too many colours, which was distracting, so on this I pared them down to a blue/purple/yellow core
