Jackie and Band I

Jackie and Band II

The well known Jazz/Soul musician Jackie Orszaczky plays at my local pub each Tuesday night . For a year I sketched Jackie and his band most Tuesdays over a beer (the sketches are here). Sometimes the music is just so touching I have to put my brush down and just flow with the music. My aim in these two paintings was to capture the communication between the members of the band. The left hand painting was entered in the 2004 Archibald Prize. Click on an image to see the details.
