Piano

Ah, the sketch day is here! I took a break from Sunday Sketches last week, so I've been eagerly waiting for it this Sunday.
So my previous(and second ever) oil on paper was a dedication to Mr Picasso, this one, my 3rd Oil on Paper is dedicated to all the classical music artists, and to the lovely instrument, the Piano. Well a little bit of information about the Piano : Piano, short for Pianoforte', the terms "piano" and "forte" meaning "quiet" and "loud" respectively, when devised in 1707 as the very early and crude version, was called "harpsichord with soft and loud". 

And now over to the other wonderful artists' blogs.

  1. lovely painting. I do like the term 'pianoforte' better than just 'piano'. though it's probably because I read too much Jane Austen.

    have a sweet day.

  4. I like the softness of the strokes you used and that there isn't too much detail to distract us with. You can't tell if the pianist is inside a room or looking at the sunset.
