In Rome, Mom fell in love with a painting of a woman with a violin. I promised her I'd draw it. Here it is, Mom, and she's holding my violin.

===

(Edit: changed some things I wasn't satisfied with: bow/hand/back)

Ref of the original picture was used, taken by my camera.
Medium: Photoshop CS2

I'd like to offer it to a friend of mine, would you agree ? If you do, I'd request a print, but as it's originally a gift for your mother, I'd understand you don't want :). Great work anyway, but I think I posted a comment mouths ago :P

I'm touched that you want to offer this to your friend. Unfortunately, due to harddrive crash, I no longer have this image in higher-resolution, so I'm afraid you'll have to find something else.

A wonderful drawing yet again. You captured the violinist's expression and motion very well. The emotion is bautifully accentuated by the colours and the way they "flow" :love: Great work!

Wonder perspective and beautifully painted. I particularly like the impression of movement which contrasts with the serenity of the voilinist's features. Great work! :clap::winner::clap:
