Azure Blue Skies

Todd Zwirkoski's avatar Todd Zwirkoski

A five piece band gets cooking musically, while life size figures enjoy the summer magic from the back of a powerboat. This sketch will have much more detail and will draw from 3 preliminary layouts in its final painted form. This piece is a celebration of music,dance and the beauty that surrounds us ! I am channeling Michelangelo's "Battle of Cascina", Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'avignon" and Raphael's " Feast of the gods". Palm trees will sway under azure blue skies with the sun and moon featured as well. Tropical flowers will be highlighted on the figures dresses. Exotic fish will be active in the turquoise waters. Caribbean music will play softly to enhance the experience. My previous six entries have all focused on the beauty of the human figure in motion while this version integrates musicians into the scene.
