After the politicians packed up their pamphlets and cleared their tables away, the Blues Jam began. Unfortunately, several musicians left after being told the jam was canceled due to the political gathering. Just goes to show you can’t trust a politician!
This painting of the horn section is my favorite from Tuesday night’s paintings. I am trying to experiment a bit more with the ink lines as well as adding spots of color. The brass of the trumpet and saxophones allows me to take advantage of the high key value of yellows against the dark value of the blues and purples, making the trumpet shape really pop.
My method remains the same. I begin with a dip pen using black ink and follow with strokes of watercolor.
