Many visual artists are inspired by music.
Jackson Pollock, was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting.
Pollock loved the freedom, tempo and energy of free-form jazz and bebop.

Pollock shared many of the principles of jazz - his work expresses an intense energy and he uses colors, splatters and lines of the paint much like the melodies, rhythms and structures of music.
Piet Mondrian loved music and listened to piano-jazz, boogie woogie while he painted.He titled this painting Broadway Boogie Woogie because it reminded him of New York City. While he painted it, he listened to his jazz and thought about city streets, buildings and flashing lights.
O’Keeffe was influenced by the concept of synesthesia – the experience of “crossed senses”, i.e. hearing images or seeing sounds. She sought to find the equivalents of music in color and imagery, and to find a universal language.
Music, Pink and Blue No. 2
Kandinsky viewed music as the most transcendent form of non-objective art - musicians could evoke images in listeners' minds merely with sounds. He strove to produce similarly object-free, spiritually rich paintings that alluded to sounds and emotions through a unity of sensation.
Step 4)

Draw expressive lines that
reflect the rhythm and melody of the music played.
Step 5)

Draw your Expressive lines in the NEGATIVE SPACE in your composition.
Color which, like music, is a matter of vibrations, reaches what is most general and therefore most indefinable in nature: its inner power... (Paul Gauguin)
Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration. (Marc Chagall)
Step 5)
Use Expressive colors, that reflect the MOOD you want viewers to experience.
