Bow

18 x 12
Dakota Board

Musicians.

Incredible people who know and understand a language of symbols. People who anticipate what is to come. Tricky meter change at the end of the movement. Build up the intensity to the next phrase. Hold the tension of the rest before entering with the note, subito piano.

Her thumb on her bow, but her mind on Hindemith.

a very nice painting indeed! The hand is really lovely--and I like her expression very much. First rate!

So, I think she is about to 'fiddle' around... Ha! Couldn't help it.

I'll tell you something I would do(in Photo shop)...I would do a gradation of the purple up into the blue. I think I don't need that line or maybe I don't need that particular blue. I like everything about the figure.
