So last time I posted a drawing and promised to post the painting. Here it is. It is a cover for the September issue of American Recorder Magazine. Recorders were popular during the Renaissance and as of late have achieved regard in the World Music genre.
It was a fun assignment. The theme was Brazil and so I researched Brazilian recorder music. Found this duo. I did a sketch of a crowd, but I thought a duo with a lush background, representing the flora and fauna of the country might also work. Searching for a female guitarist, I was inspired by Badi Assad's music and her hair!
So here you have it, my first magazine cover!
