Watercolour on 325 gsm fine grain watercolour paper 30×20 cm
From a cropped photo. I was intrigued by the harsh stage lighting picking out only part of the subject.
Not my usual thing, but presently stuck for inspiration.
watercolour, watercolor, musician, music, saxaphone, light, dark

I can see your fascination with the light in this painting Ian, the shadowed areas look fantastic and add such an atmosphere to the work. Love the sax and the fingers too. Stuck for inspiration…well, you certainly found it here.
That’s very kind of you Lisa and thanks for the fave!!

Excellent! Really live feel, great hands (you understand) and it tells a moving story too!
Thanks CC..wish I could play it like this.
This is great, Ian – so different than your usual works. I love it when an artist takes on a new challenge, even if it’s from lack of inspiration, as you never know where it might lead. Love the stark contrast, allowing the viewer to fill in the rest lying in the shadows.
Hi Marsha..yeah a bit of a change. Nice to do something different once in a while!
Fabulous work !
Great work with the highlights in the saxophone Ian! Nicely done!
Thanks Ken. Glad you think the sax works!
now this is rather groovy old chap!!
Cheers Pete. Stan Getz eat your heart out!
I like it Ian, I think it brings even more attention to the sax, that you allowed the player to disolve into the dark.
Yeah it does make the player more anonymous, and saved me from doing any facial features!!
