The blues

I did this for Jazziz magazine to go with a feature on saxophonists. The mixed media technique is simple, beginning with a base drawing in charcoal, fixed with workable fixative- always in a ventilated area. Then I layered with washes of acrylic, and mixed blues into all the colors introduced into the painting to keep the color harmony. Cel vinyl paint was used for the accent marks, using a toothbrush to spatter, and the handle to draw through and push the strokes to get that movement.
