Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons – Autumn – Allegro. This is my first attempt at Photo merge using Photoshop, and there is room for improvement, but not for today.
I mentioned in the video that I am taking a Music Theory class at the local campus of the University of Wisconsin. It is challenging, that consumes an enormous amount of my free time, and the free time that I have left to work on this painting has been drastically cut. It is worth it. This class only lasts through December, so I will be back deep into the Art soon after, with a greater depth of understanding of the structure, and the harmony that is music.
Listening to Dave Brubeck – Take Five
Until that time, lets move on and talk about the music of this great composer. The more I listen to classical music the more Vivaldi’s music rises in importance and meaning to me. I still have Mozart and Chopin, along with Bach and Beethoven, but ….aaaaaaaaaaaa….Viavldi your music reaches deep inside.
As far as my progress on this work, the beams, which are discussed in the video, have greatly improved the emotional impact of this work. To not make the disruption of the beams too predictable there is a change with the last set. I pulled them back away from the increasing breaking apart that is occurring as you follow the music. By painting this last set of beams, not so much as flying apart, but as cracked pieces, they have halted their destruction. This than lets these 6 seconds of music to end, and the flow to continue into the next measures.
Listening to Vivaldi’s Great Concerto for two Cellos in G minor, RV531. When it comes to Classical Music it does not get any better than this, with only Mozart at times its equal.
Aimee Mann’s – Little Tornado
Next up, is finishing the cracking beams, painting in the words, which will be interesting because they, at times will move over the beams, and work on those violet note heads, giving them more depth, character and speed.
Listening to Jack Johnson – Upside Down.
