New Commission- work in progress

This is what I'm working on at the moment. A new mixed media painting with a musical theme. This is for my brother's music studio so music is an obvious theme. Continuing my current love for quirky buildings and rooftops I thought it would be cool to do a New York themed rooftop jazz / blues band.

Early sketches and ideas

Prepping the canvas

Used collage and various texture pastes to build this up

Transferring the sketch and incorporating some of the random collage and texture shapes

THe silver leaf really picks up the flash! hoping this will help with the glittering city in the distance
