Not Quite My Tempo

This was such a frustrating piece to complete! I went back and forth for ages as to whether I should make the composition landscape, but eventually settled on portrait because all the others are same and it would break up the series. The background characters were the main issue because I just couldn’t find a way to fit them around the main character, so I had to get inventive in order to make them visible. I think perhaps because I feel like I have to make a series of these – and they have to be good – I’m thinking too much and over doing it, which is why this one felt more forced than the other two. The name of the piece has been taken from the film “Whiplash”, and again if you haven’t seen it then go sort yourself out!
