Thanks for all the great choices, Marianne! :clap:

The harpist appears to really be into what he's playing ....harp from the heart.
This is oil on a 5x7 canvas panel. I wanted to do it all in knife, but I kept chickening out in tight spots...so this is about 50/50, brush and knife.
I wish I had made the background a different value or different color for more separation. I just don't feel like investing more time into it.

C&C welcome. Thanks for Commenting!!! :)

Done a bit over 2 hrs.

I think it's good too, especially the face and hands which are very expressive.

It's lovely, the warmth of the colors just accentuates the warmth of his expression. He obviously loves what he is doing.
