Piano. 15x20 watercolor.
Here's an example of the value of elimination; I saw a general L shaped composition from where I stood, and to make that composition work I needed to knock out about 80% of what was actually there. My aim was to suggest a piano and a wine bar and people in the room and a general feeling of a festive evening, following that L shape, and when I squinted at the painting and saw that this had been suggested I quit.
