View Full Version : The Guitar Drifter

I have given up on trying to get this worked out. I think the best thing to do is to put something in front of the guitar player and do my best to hide the train tracks (looking more like a roller coaster turn). I do like the idea so I will try again. And it was a fun experiment even if it did turn out to be a flop.

Will you tell us a bit more about it? Size? Canvas or board...or what? :confused:

The perspectives and angles and seemingly out of place sizing of elements such as the guitar makes this a very interesting piece, perhaps even a style you could develop. Surrealistic comes to mind. :eek:

There might be some details you could add, but painting in more elements might not be the best approach. A shame we can't see it actual size and with higher resolution. Can you take some closes ups or crop and enlarge some different sections?

the shapes look a little bit weird. Is it for purpose?

That track is definitely at an angle. I'm guessing that this was an idea out of your head? A reference would really help. However, I also had the thought that this could be more of a surreal image.

It's 11" x 14" stretched canvas.

My thought was that the drifter would sit down and play a song. I saw a couple of images that are similar on the Internet and this is a combination of those images.

Great feedback and I will sleep on it some more.
