Painting to the Beat

Our end of year Art exam including listening to eight songs and picking one that we fancied the most. I chose the song Tunsian Fantasy by Dizzy Gillespie from the playlist do to its interesting beat.

When listening to the song I pictured a sunset on a city, so I began looking for inspiring artists in order to find valid source images. I decided Strawberry Swing by Pique Studios, Jazz Cityscape by Debra Hurd, Early Birds by Kirsten Bailey, and Vibrant Masai Mara Sunset best fit my idea of what the song would look like.

Then I did a couple practice drawings of what I could potentially draw and even practiced my sunset creation skills.

 Finally, I started painting...
