Sketches of Spain

This record is different from my usual style.  The person wanted something asymmetrical, and they wanted the colors to exactly match the album cover.  They wanted it to really convey the feeling of the album.  So, I put the album on in my car, and took a nice long summer drive out into Port Orchard, Washington to really let the whole thing sink in at once.  No breaks.  This is the result, and I think it came out pretty great.  I also had to switch to a different type of paint to get the exact color match that was requested, so the texture of the design is quite painterly and the blocks of color took several coats to achieve the desired opacity.  It lives in Texas now, with its brothers and sisters.
 



The record cover that I was requested to riff off of was this:
