Music and musicians, On the stage, Sirkka Jalava

They have played the last tones out on the stage and they are glad and proud of their music. Now the public gives their ovationes in the shine of the floodlights. A succesful concert has come to the end. The Guitarist feels happy.

I did this on a black paper, size 50x32 cm, with dry pastels. Sorry for the stains of colors.

  2. He looks like he is either giving a farewell salute to the audience or is poised for one big strum on the guitar. Your sketches of the musicians here have been great!

  3. Terrific capture of his motion even if at the moment he is standing still you know the arm will come down in a second or two! And his expxression is so serious and into what he is doing. You show it all so very well.

    2. Lynn, you may see him as you want! But I thaugt him as a guitarist giving a last farewell to the audience. Everything is possible! Thank you, Lynn!

  4. I could see him as a conductor or as a guitarist. I think you've really shown how the shapes and movements of our arms make and move sound, I love this.
