Painting - Transparent Watercolor
Tubas are big. Yes I know you think you knew that already, but I don't think you've really grasped my point. Tubas are big, really big. Tubas are person sized instruments. They revile the musician in bulk. But saying it just doesn't do the tuba justice. So I painted this tuba big.
I don't know how I would have gone about painting the tuba from this angle working from life. Taking the reference photo was easy. I propped the tuba up against two chairs so it wouldn't fall and lay down on the ground to photograph it looking up. It's the classic big general shot. And unlike many generals, the tuba really is big. Did I mention it's big?
