Inspiration for this quirky painting came to me well before dawn a while ago. I was sound asleep when I woke up with a vivid image that so intrigued me that I scribbled it down on my notepad (which is always on my beside table, just in case I get a nocturnal inspiration) to make sure that I didn't forget it.
I have transferred this idea to a tangible image on a wooden support applying a limited colour palette with an emphasis on wood and its many gloriously rich hues. This painting has tested me on so many levels. I had no problems doing the unattached strings on the double bass, the violin and the marionettes, however I think a banjo or some other instrument with fewer strings would have been easier than the harp with its 47 strings! At the end of the day I must admit that I am absolutely thrilled with it. Do hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Quality acrylic paint on cradled wood panel. Protective coat of satin varnish.
Sides stained the same colour as the background.
