Palau Round Stage 2

Palau de la Music Round Stage, acrylics on canvas

This takes place in the music hall in the lower level of the Palau de la Musica, in Valencia, Spain.  It is one of only three remaining in a large series of paintings.  They originate with miniature pen and ink drawings done in the audience at the Palau.  They explore the state of mind we experience when we listen to music, in this case that of symphonic bands.  There is a dream like state some experience where we are in between a zone.

This is another in my Palau de la Musica series.  These start life as small pen and ink drawings (often available for purchase as well) that I do in the audience using both hands.  Then I work up a painting in the studio.

Prints of pen and ink music related drawings! Just $15 | pen and ink music drawings

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.  Pricing information at the bottom.

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 started life as a drawing at Palau de la Musica.  I enlarged the original, a tiny 2 x 4″ and put it on the canvas board, then painted in with acrylics.  See also Two Fiddles at the Palau, a version of this based on the very same drawing.
