Keep on Loving You consists of four panels with an overall length of five feet four inches. This artwork is one of my new series I call my mini-works. This background is now ready for the music. I have tried to use many 80’s color shades for this part of the work. The thought is to give each canvass its own feel. I believe I achieved that in this artwork. Next up I will be drawing in the flow of the music.
As for the color scheme for the music, ah…….I have not a clue. Picking the note color usually happens in a moment. I look at the work, and look at the colors that I have not use for the background, and I then find one that either stands out, or blends in, depending on what I believe is the overall feel of the music I am portraying. So, is the music is in your face, or instead does it shy away, that is how I decide the colors to use for the music. I then focus on the flow of the music. The moment that this artwork portrays actually decides the mood and the color drama I want to create.
