This is based on an automatic drawing and given an expressionist treatment in acrylics. Automatic drawing was popularized by the surrealists in the 1920ś. The audience is bathed in a comforting blue haze. The original drawing is posted below.
Waiting for the Concert at the Small Hall in the Palau de la Musica, Valencia.
Continuing with the music and Palau themes, here I use a palette knife to dress the audience awaiting the concert. The Palau has a small concert hall in the basement. We listen to some local traditional Valencian music. Below the painting you will find a link to a video I shot at a local fair with some examples of the squeaky instruments we listened to. You hear them during the many parades you can see in the city.
