Central Park Sax

This fellow was photographed in Central Park by Lee A. Brown and is the March challenge for "A Day Not Wasted": http://adaynotwasted.com/.   I have been painting musicians and was pointed to this challenge by Linda Nickels - see her blog in my list.  I used the daily painting 6" x 6" format and tried to avoid the "over do - redo" trap!   It was a lot of fun painting the mottled background but the horn was a real challenge!

  1. I am so proud of you Jill, for not only tackling this, but doing a great job! I like how you cropped him and eliminated the unnecessary details. The soft, muted background helps him stand out. Well done!
