The Flute Player


One thing or another has been keeping me away from my art since last week...Did this painting today, determined to set the ball rolling again! Took me about one and half hour. I have used a little amount of white oil pastel color in his hair and beard to create texture.
Watercolor /mixed media on cold pressed 140 lb paper.

  3. This is very nice... Just a technical thing !! The thumb of the right hand should be supporting the flute...

  10. I like the colors you used, the way you mixed them to get a nice feeling to the composition.. one small suggestion though.. his eyes could have been partly closed.. sort of engaged.. engrossed in his music.. here he is almost posing, dont you think?

  11. Hi Arti;
    I don't think I have ever seen a painting of yours that I didn't like and that goes for your most recent ones. I really admire someone with your talent.
