Prints of pen and ink music related drawings

I did these pen and ink drawings in the audience at Palau de la Musica in Valencia, Spain.  The originals are done on very small paper in pen and ink.  I use both hands, one for the ink pen and the other a brush with a water reservoir.  I call it automatic drawing since I can not see what I am doing, between looking at the subject and the darkness of the hall.  I can not work from photographs as photos are not permitted.  Pricing information at the bottom.

Video: Paintings and Drawings Done at Palau de la Musica

The paintings and drawings in this video slide show were done at Palau de la Musica, Valencia.  They explore the state of mind we experience as music transports us to a semi dream-like state.  The paintings and drawings in this video slide show were done at Palau de la Musica, Valencia.  They explore the state of mind we experience as music transports us to a semi dream-like state.  The music is Arco de Noe by Oscar Navarro, a Valencian composer.  He was in the audience the day we heard this piece.

Two Brown Bass Fiddles at the Palau

Two Brown Bass Fiddles at the Palau

This started life as a drawing at Palau de la Musica.  I enlarged the original, a tiny 2 x 4″ and put it on the canvas board, then painted in with acrylics.  See also Two Fiddles at the Palau, a version of this based on the very same drawing.

Fantasy Quartet

Fantasy Quartet

This is the second fantasy based on the “automatic” drawing you can see below.   Where do our thoughts go as we become absorbed in the music?  The swathes of color symbolize the vast space into which the musicians and audience project their dreamy thoughts.
