Summer Strings

"Summer Strings" • 9" x 12" unframed • acrylic on Bristol
© 2005 C.Berk

Today's painting...an alla prima acrylic on Bristol.
I cropped this grouping from an entire orchestra because of the intensity of these guys warming-up. Some bold colors with loose brushwork are used, in hope of enhancing kinetic energy that anticipates the evening's performance.

I like it!! I remeber this guy performing that evening. He was a nice looking, tall man with greying curly hair!
CRC will like it.
