Expressive Sax is the third fine art figurative oil painting in my series entitled ?Sax in the City?
The sax player is Henry (Hank) Mobley who was based in Philadelphia, born in 1930 and died in 1986 aged 55. A hard bop, soul Jazz tenor Saxophonist having a laid-back, subtle and melodic style.
He’s created on a 91cm x 61cm stretched cotton canvas using a knife, as is my trademark technique, in two layers to allow the sweeping knife strokes of the black background to influence the foreground subject knife strokes in a contemporary realism. The chiaroscuro technique and dim lighting add to the atmosphere and black and white is in keeping with the era.
