Music on canvas – Dmitri Shostakovich Valse no 2

Inspired by the work of Dmitri Shostakovich, I started the third painting part of my Musicals series. The composer’s Valse no 2 becomes a fluctuation of color on the canvas.

My technique resembles that of Shostakovich, who used to work freely and let himself be carried away by the natural sequence of musical notes. Dripping with acrylic colors, oil on canvas, 40×70 cm, finalised in April 2013.

The pictures below illustrate the work stages.
