The Quartet – A work in progress

For a number of months now I have been working on a large-scale painting of a string quartet, piecing together information collected during rehearsal in the form of drawings and oil studies of both the individual players and of all four instrumentalists together.

The development of this painting so far is brought together as a masterclass in the November issue of Artists & Illustrators which is out now. These small preparatory oil studies are included alongside a number of images showing the progression of the larger painting in progress.
