My paintings of J B at the Blues Jam are always a bit different from the rest.  I’m not sure why, but I like them.

J B at the Blues Jam

I used bright orange in almost all the other paintings I did last night.  This one is quite minimal, taking advantage of the play of yellow against purple, and its neighbor dark blue.  J B’s guitar strap is unique.  Maybe that’s what hijacks my brain and allows me to try something different.

Like all the others, I started with a quick drawing with a dip pen and black ink. Then I followed with brush strokes of watercolor: dioxazine purple, ultramarine blue and aureolin.
