I did these pen and ink drawings in the audience at Palau de la Musica in Valencia, Spain. The originals are done on very small paper in pen and ink. I use both hands, one for the ink pen and the other a brush with a water reservoir. I call it automatic drawing since I can not see what I am doing, between looking at the subject and the darkness of the hall. I can not work from photographs as photos are not permitted.

Continuing the exploration of music related themes, here I add the movement of the arm and the swing of the leg to contrast with the movement in the background. This is acrylics on paper. The curvaceous movement of the leg ties with the curve of the contrabass, as they seem to dance across the stage. Strong and unusual colors make the painting dance off the wall.

This is based on an automatic drawing and given an expressionist treatment in acrylics. Automatic drawing was popularized by the surrealists in the 1920ś. The audience is bathed in a comforting blue haze. The original drawing is posted below.
