Ekphrasis by Rontu827 Ekphrasis by Rontu827
The assignment was to choose a classical music piece an ekphrasis for it- a work of art that represented the music.
The song was Olivier Messiaen's "Celebration of the Beautiful Waters" composed on the Ondes Martenot. If I feel like it later, I'll go into detail about why this art is a good representation of the song, but it's kind of a long explanation. If you feel like reading about the composer, you might be able to figure it out. :)

The medium is black ballpoint pen ink (bic pens, to be specific) diluted with rubbing alcohol, with a little white gesso and acrylic paint added to clean and brighten up the dove.
