MY PLAYLIST FOR DRAWING AND PAINTING

Music and art are inexorably bound together, and this playlist of inspirational and relaxing classical works provides the perfect background to time spent drawing and painting. From the iconic first notes of Promenade from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, to Murphy’s sublime Scintillation from And then at night I paint the stars, these works span a multitude of hues and tones, from Higdon’s Pale Yellow to Bliss’s Purple. Prime your canvas, prepare your palette and immerse yourself in a world of colour and sound.
