The street guitarist
I like to take shots of people in the street and this guitarist was playing in California, trying
his best to look and sound like Bob Dylan. That afternoon, he was sitting in front of a wall
with his guitare case opened. I decided to make a painting of him. Again, this is a quick
painting, executed in a day, spontaneous, Alla Prima. I first created a color sketch. The
dominante color was going to be pale yellow akin to the sun light; a cool morning sun, while
the musician's face of a ruddy complexion, shows how much time he spends outdoors.
Music is always a winning subject matter and since I had created a previous painting with
musicians, this one was also going to keep in the same mood. The style being
impressionistic, I gave myself three hours to finish the actual 8" x 10 "painting.
If you click on the image, you'll get a larger view.
I paint from the life model once a week, and this is important to understand how to paint from a photo or from imagination. There is the understanding of the different planes and what makes a volume. And there is the understanding of the correct colors applied rapidly without much preparation. Therefore, the painting comes out more spontaneously.
Renoir, Onions, 1881
