ABSTRACT ART – The Jazz Quartet – FINISHED Part 3 of 3

Well, The Jazz Quartet is finished now.  I have used a range of tones of yellows, browns and red being the most stark color.  The black I’ve used as an overall outline along with miscellaneous shading.  As this set of paintings is going into a what I would call my boring foyer in my home, this should really help to perk it up hopefully, giving a bright, fun atmosphere when one walks in.

I know the painting has turned out somewhat more abstract than cubist.  But this is what I’ve pictured in my head originally when I did the sketch.  I wanted the feel of a dark stage where the Jazz members are lit by some abstract lighting above.  Slight lighting on the instruments, leading down to a darker floor area.  I wanted the painting to radiate a fun and energetic overall feeling.

Hopefully, to the viewer, I’ve managed to capture that.

    • Thankyou for the lovely feedback Zina. Would you believe I still haven’t hung it up yet! I just realised the other day, I have to varnish it yet as I saw the set leaning against the wall in my studio. So many things to do and so little time! I shall have to do more of these types of paintings to put around the house. I too, love the colours. I think they brighten things up. Have a great day and thankyou again! 😀
