He was talking about composing music and said something along the line of "We always played them first on an acoustic guitar. It shouldn't matter what you play it on , a good song still sounds good on acoustic guitar or piano "(as well as electric guitar)...wow.That stopped me in my tracks.
I paint in both acrylic and watercolour ((two instruments) and Tom was so right- if the song (compostion/idea) is a good one you should be able to play it on either and it will still sound good.
I don't often paint the same composition (another pun?) twice , but this is one time when I did..I really enjoyed painting version 1 in watercolour and did it again in acrylic, and yes, I think both are strong paintings.
Time to get back into the studio and put on "Wildflowers" while I paint.
