First of all I put in a random background wash.
Next the image of the cello and hands were added in red oil pastel. This will resist the acrylic paint and enable me to scratch back to it if I want.
After this it went very dark and I forgot to take a photo. Since then I have lightened it up and the photo at the top is where it's at now.

I feel this Saxophone painting is finished. It's rather busy with all the patterned underpainting showing through but I think it makes it more interesting, in fact, I have enhanced the pattern in many places by backpainting around and into it. You can see pictures of the process, right from the start, in previous posts. If you like musical paintings check out my web site http://www.susanneclark.com/ and go to the musical page where you will find lots of cello and saxophone paintings with a few pianos thrown in.

The Golden Saxophone is turning out to be a very glowing picture. I have used bronze, gold and silver paint on the sax and with the overpainting of other colors it has lots of metalic glints. It's rather busy with all the textured pattern showing through but I quite like the effect. Tell me what you think.
I should be finished in a day or so so check back to see the finished result in the next update.

A New Musical Painting.
This shows the pattern and detail. I will simplify it all as I go along. Check back over the next few days to see the progress.
