Hi all,

Finally done with the goats, ready to ship it off to the framer. :) Decided I needed a fun piece again - so I ended up doing this, another guitarist portrait.
Couldn't resist this photo - now I have two Stevie Ray Vaughan...:lol:
Sorry about the bad pic, had to use flash. BG is all black in RL.

On Canson, mostly pastel pencils and Faber Castell

Hi Merethe,

Fantastic! What a way with value you have. This would make a great, life-size poster.

Merethe this is wonderful. I love the effect of the light on the dark background. The guitarist looks so lifelike.

There is not one thing that could make this better, not even adding sound. It's a beautifully rendered and very evocative piece. Well done.
