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 At then at night I paint the stars, these works span a multitude of hues and colours, from Higdon’s Pale Yellow to Bliss’s Purple.
