March 14 No.2 15x20 watercolor.
This one was fun; A guy next to me asked what I was going to paint, and looking down the length of a gallery thick with art and filled with people I answered, "Everything in the place."
My solution was to make a composition with the foreground guitar player's shoulder and strap that emphasized the forced perspective, and also obscured a lot of foreground detail. I skipped indicating art on the walls and just tried to give a sense of the depth of the room and the sparkle of backlit people way at the back.
