Sometimes a title is half the work
That was the title - the rest was easy. This little ink sketch was inspired by Gershwin's fantastic piano piece. Two sweeps of a flat brush were enough to indicate a grand piano. For the ink work, I used a plastic fork that I picked up at KFC's. After breaking off three of the four prongs I used the remaining prong as a nib. I deliberately set out to have an uncontrolled flow of ink on the paper. I wouldn't recommend this for calligraphy, that's for sure!
I did a series of these last year - all musicians. This one was my personal favourite.
