concert master

I worked on a sketch (monoprint) for a sculpture. This is inspired by a photo of my cousin Andrew Irvin - Concert master of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. I saw the portrait of him on Facebook and commented how much I liked it. He said I could use it to inspire my work. 

I did this one first-  I started in water color then added litho inks.    I decided to do another -  trying to get more of the movement of his hands playing big the violin.  I think it has more energy but it might be too abstract to see the image.

The next one I will reverse the drawing - my cousin is a righty.
