The last painting of the night ranks as my favorite from last night’s Blues Jam in Easton, PA.
The musicians are not the only inspirations on Tuesday nights. I often sit beside Ladd as he works his camera, capturing the sound and energy of the performing musicians. His mouth is always turned into a quiet smile. He is a regular, as am I, though neither of us stand under the spotlight.
Drawn first with dip pen in black ink using a very flexible tip. Followed by strokes of pure, juicy watercolor.
