Title: Harp Notes
Ah, the harp – a beautiful looking and sounding instrument. Cool, somber colors.
The Crazy Notes series is my colorful tribute to musical instruments in their many forms. I am so amazed at the mechanics and beauty of these implements. They are truly functional works of art.
These pieces were created by doing some white-space masking and then watercolor washes over top. Plastic wrap was laid on top to create pools, troughs, and ridges. I sometimes leave it on to dry while other times it was removed when things had sufficiently taken shape. Finally I came back with pen and ink to add details and flare.
