Jazz Club

I continue converting my vinyl records to digital form. Today I listened to several as I let my dip pen wander over the paper. I penned the composition below while listening to jazz.

Watercolor and Ink: Jazz Club

Jazz Club
9″x12″ Bristol 2-ply

I began by inking my recollection of the tracings my records made on the computer screen as their analog character changed to digital. The closely-packed lines represent the higher frequency melodic lines. I added slow sinusoidal-type waves for the bass frequencies. I let the pen wander randomly as I listened to the music.

I was lucky to find that it did not take much tweaking of the random lines to render the musician. I added the keyboard, violin head and double bass after the fact.
