The Blues... utter joy while expressing utter pain. Was watching John Mayer's live recording"Covered in Rain" [link]
over and over(again) as visual reference and to keep my motivational juices going. Wait for the solo in the middle... when it looks like him and the guitar are crying together...
This took about 6 hours to work out. Was interrupted by an hour long blackout at my apartment building. Good thing I saved everything just before it hit. Photo reference also: [link]
Listen to Mayer's cover of Tom Petty's Free Fallin' here [link]
it is way better than the original. This also feels right for this painting.
