Bach Sonata BWV 1014 Adagio. As can be seen this artwork is coming together. The background is becoming what it is, and the music is beginning to shine above. I can create movement with the shafts, especially with the use of darker colors. This contrast with the notes and the background creates a dramatic vertical movement to the music.
The colors for the shafts where fairly easy to decide: I wanted a darker color with some contrast added. The easy choice was an old favorite Phthalo Blue Red shade. The beams where more difficult. I tried using a Red Magenta, and then spreading white across, followed up with a violet-blue. Not good enough. I removed the paint and played with a couple of other ideas, before deciding to stay in the reds for color. The only decent contrasting Red was Cadmium Orange? I spread it heavy over the Pyrrole Red, and after it was dry, it looked good. Good enough to leave it alone.
Next up, what will put this work over-the-top, are the Ties. Does that not sound exciting? It will be, once you see my Ties.
