Duet - Part 1

My brother's family was in town recently and while they were here I snapped a photo of my brother and his daughter playing a duet on the piano. They were rockin' "Heart and Soul" and "Chopsticks". It was an absolutely precious moment. And somehow I've had a run of painting folks from behind. It's like I'm able to sneak up and capture a moment in time, totally on the sly, and sneak away leaving them none the wiser and unaffected by my presence.

I started with just the background.
Piano color at the bottom, wall color at the top.

I sketched in the elements of the scene.

I painted the elements white so I could add color.
I also darkened the wall color.

I moved the girl over because I wanted them touching.
I began adding color.
