Oldies but goodie. Did this back in 1994 I think while taking a class with Bill Mayer. I was influenced by his bright colors. This was a piece to represent an outdoor amphitheater. The music I was listening to was Enigma.
11x17 color laser print of background painted on top of with oils. Hands, crowd and smoke mist are oils. Microphone was painted in oils the covered over with a photo that I took for the reference. There were some minor tweaks to the scan in Photoshop but I say what ever it takes to get it the way you want it.
