The trumpeter is a member of the London based contemporary music ensemble ‘Sounds Positive’. My interest here was in painting a brass instrument in perspective. Naturally I was concerned about the negative shapes I created as I composed the painting as well as the colour combinations, but most important for me was to make the trumpet work without it becoming a boring illustration.
