Another painting inspired by the Swingin' Vermont Big Band.  I liked the challenge of working with a variety of textures.  Figuring out the composition was an interesting process, too.  I'm happy with the close up view that I settled on for both this painting and the previous post, Brass Section.  It's a fun twist to have the focus on the instruments rather than the musician.

The swirling lines of the paste paper are perfect here. This piece just feels like music!

Thanks, Bren. The lines of the paste paper fell in all the right places for this one!
