A Present from Addie to Maestronet

Recommended Posts

I had Niccolò stand behind a sheet, with a canelabra behind him, and from the shadow he cast...

No, that's what Edouart did in 1835.

I think the original is in the RAM collection? Anyhow, I traced over a really poor quality jpeg in Adobe Illustrator.

Thank you Addie, after seeing the Christopher Robin and Pooh sketch in your profile thought that you might have done it in pen and ink so that is why I asked.

Terry, your Paganini oil is fit to hang with Rembrandt and Picasso, very nice.

That's an awfully good painting.  I think portrait painting is the hardest kind to do.  I'm sure your violins must be turning out well. 

 

Did you use a geometric construction for the violin shape or did you just paint it free hand?

I think just the process of painting over and over again will serve the purpose.  You don't have to paint the same image over and over again.

 

BTW...very nice painting!  :)

Wow, it's been that long since I checked the forum?  Have to go back a page to find the posting. Always willing to share, and his work is so neat.  An inspiration to a hack butcher like me.  Usually I find out someone died when I ask about them at Christmas and people look at me puzzled and say, "Oh, he died back in May."  No one told me.  A week isn't so bad.  

I thought guitarists were the only ones who didn't know how to cut their strings.

Condolences to family and friends.
