Last night we heard a concert by the Bard College Baroque Ensemble in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
|Dr. Alexander Bonus directs the Bard Baroque Ensemble|
During the performance, I painted the director Alexander Bonus seated at the harpsichord.
I was sitting in the second row, with a small watercolor set clipped to the left side of the sketchbook. I got all the materials ready before the music started so that I wouldn't have to fumble around for gear.
Guessing that the house lights would be turned too low to judge color accurately, I opted for black and white gouache over a lay-in in ochre watercolor pencil. This detail is about the size of a business card.
