Artist's Description

This painting was inspired by a black and white photograph of the great Louis Armstrong. It’s an image that brings a smile to my face as there is one on his.

I wanted to paint Louis in bright, playful colours but with some depth. So I chose a blue pallette and off I went. My father once asked me – why does he have a green nose? To which I replied – why not?

A3; acrylic on gesso coated paper
