    What Music Do You Listen to When You're drawing ?

    i just want to share this nice music with you :
    Declan Galbraith : Vincent (starry, Starry Night)

    its lyric :
    Starry, starry night.
    Paint your palette blue and grey,
    Look out on a summer's day,
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
    Shadows on the hills,
    Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
    In colors on the snowy linen land.

    Now i understand what you tried to say to me,
    How you suffered for your sanity,
    How you tried to set them free.
    They would not listen, they did not know how.
    Perhaps they'll listen now.

    Starry, starry night.
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
    Swirling clouds in violet haze,
    Reflect in vincent's eyes of china blue.
    Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
    Weathered faces lined in pain,
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

    Now i understand what you tried to say to me,
    How you suffered for your sanity,
    How you tried to set them free.
    They would not listen, they did not know how.
    Perhaps they'll listen now.

    For they could not love you,
    But still your love was true.
    And when no hope was left in sight
    On that starry, starry night,
    You took your life, as lovers often do.
    But i could have told you, vincent,
    This world was never meant for one
    As beautiful as you.

    Starry, starry night.
    Portraits hung in empty halls,
    Frameless head on nameless walls,
    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
    Like the strangers that you've met,
    The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
    The silver thorn of bloody rose,
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

    Now i think i know what you tried to say to me,
    How you suffered for your sanity,
    How you tried to set them free.
    They would not listen, they're not listening still.
    Perhaps they never will.
    i believe Declan Galbraith has a very beautiful voice

    classical, chamber, opera. Mostly French, German and Italian composers performed by the great international orchestras. particularly composers like Mahler, Shoenberg, Debussy, Schumann, Sibelius, Elgar, from the 19th/early 20th century. also music of the 16th century.

    i listen to this music even when i'm not painting!

    I listen to all kinds of music, nothing in particular. My favorite music is when my husband plays guitar. His music tends to light the creativity for me.


    If he's not playing then my second favorite thing to do is have one of my favorite cartoon series running in the background. Cartoon animation is a big influence in my artlife. It's initially what got me interested and I still find myself using it as a muse constantly.

    If I want to get lifted up and get my motor running, it's Waylon Jennings.
    If I want to get soulful, and listen to the best writing in the world, it's Jamey Johnson.
    If I just want to be mellow and listen to some great music, it's Chet Atkins on the guitar.

    Thank you for posting the words to this song, Shekofte.

    Though I still prefer this sung by the guy who wrote it - Don McLean.

    Music to assist my creativity

    Hi there.

    Well, this is my 1st post on this forum, having just signed up as a forum member, despite having used ArtRage 2 for several months now, since purchasing my fab Bamboo tablet , and very recently upgrading to ArtRage Studio Pro.

    I like to listen to a variety of music whilst I'm using ArtRage for designing my ceramic works, mainly podcasts, such as the excellent Spacemusic (spacemusic.nl) and a now-extinct selection Eban's Lounge Selection.

    Sometimes, it'll be a one of many favourite soundtrack selections associated with my sources of inspiration/interests (astronomy, spaceflight), classical music, lounge,....

    I like my music, like I enjoy my art. I basically listen to whatever Pandora rolls out, lol. It could be pretty much anything, because I have pretty much all types of music listed on it. Soundtracks, techno, trance, rap, rock, pop, country, video game music even... People going through my collection of CD's tend to get confused, because on one page of the CD book they'll find a Tool or Prodigy CD, then they'll turn the page and run into something like Spirit Flutes or LesiŽm Mystic Spirit Voices, lol.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
