Painting Finished: Liszt Recital

February 22, 2013

Here’s the finished version of the painting, “Liszt Recital,” 8 x 10 inches on a plaster (Permastone) panel.



  1. HI David,
    Congratulations again – not only is the surface inventive, but so is the light, which you basically had to judge by eye, since your only reference was a thumbnail sketch. The light looks convincing, and a little intriguing to me – not sure why, but maybe because we don’t often paint scenes with dim lighting.

  2. Thank you. The main reason I reworked the curtains was that the value came out too bright. I wanted to accent the contrast to give his face and hands the sort of glow I remembered, which was the reason I wanted to paint it in the first place. I’ll study it for awhile, and may change my mind again.
