Francois Boieldieu
- Concert for Harp & Strings in C - III. Allegro agitato

Sometimes you just know,
when something is right...
I had that feeling while creating

I love to work with the batik method to outline the abstract shapes. The white lines enhance the colors and provide that extra bold dimension.

Before matting the painting, I glued - with a special collage medium the music on.
(The medium will conserve the music paper and will not yellow it later.)
Then I matted good quality thick matting on the watercolor.
As final touch musical notes (Czerny) are also glued ON the matting which gives it that depth feeling.
I framed this watercolor in a simple black wooden gallery frame, ready to go for the next exhibit!
