Atlanta Jazz Singer

An oil sketch from a rather out of focus snapshot taken at an outdoor jazz concert at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta when we were in the States last year. I liked it because it seemed to capture the atmosphere of the event well in spite of its technical shortcomings.
I have used a very limited palette; titanium white, blue-black, raw sienna and brown madder. At the very end I added a few accents of ultramarine, winsor green and permanent rose

Re: Atlanta Jazz Singer

I like that it's ~almost~ monochromatic. Great!

Very live, spontaneous feel, and I too like the color additions.

Classy painting. I like her hair and the dots of highlights all over the painting.
