This fourth image of this popular Chopin music is near finished. I am also surprised how well this painting moved along, without any major issues. The planning had to be good because of my limited working space, and that paid off for there is not much I would change. The overall look of the music is pretty good considering I had to fit a lot of Chopin into 36 inches by 24 inches without the artwork looking crowded. All that is now left is for me to do is to sharpen the edges, shape up the music, clean up the background, write in the title of the music, and finally sign and date.
Since this work is different from my current style I do have so thoughts on how this project is turning out. I like the reflective qualities of the silver and bronze colors, and their changing colors in different light and angles. That is a surface feature for me, but also it works well with my theme of simulating movement in these artworks. Reliving the past with the flatness, and especially the oblong shape of the music are two traits that can create highly marketable artworks, especially to musicians. Although I will not return to this look unless commissioned, I still enjoyed the challenge and income of this type of project.
