This colorful clarinet watercolor was inspired in part by one that I played in middle school. There are so many complex valves and buttons on this glittering instrument, and I loved studying them to get them in the right spot.
The bright pink-coral hues and vibrant details of the guitar and capo make this piece a unique and eye-catching addition to any room. Whether you’re a musician or simply appreciate the beauty of musical instruments, this painting is a fun and creative way to add a touch of musical inspiration to your home.
This was painted from an upright bass that I photographed at a music festival.
