Trumpet Study

Nicole Ethen's avatar Nicole Ethen

These paintings are based on the same trumpet. When the trumpet is placed in front of a black or a white background, the emphasized reflections seem to change. I was very interested in the concept that the same view of something could produce similar and yet very different results so instead of painting one of them, I painted both. I painted these using ONLY red, blue, yellow, and white paint. No black paint was ever used.
