Piano Time 2015-Blocking In

My first design planned for figures on the sides but the trick with these kinds of commissions is to balance the design with how long it takes to execute.

The end result? Harlequin pattern on the sides and top.

Looking down on the top with part of the figures visible. It took two hours to paint all those little triangles.

Heads of The Doctor and Pulcinella drawn with Stabilo Aquarellable pencil. It has a soft lead so doesn't leave an indentation and is water-soluble, so melts into the paint.
