Nice going Ian... love the 3D effect you managed to achieve with the rose.... (that music piece drove me nuts when I was learning it...lol)

Very realistic. Thought it was a ref photo. Beautiful work and a nice series

I agree with Elinor, I too thought it was a ref photo. Magnificent work

I love the work you're doing lately. Can we see a detail?

This is exquisite - there's just no end to your talent. I bet it drove you mad doing all the musical notes and straight lines! Superb work!

This is so realistic, I thought it was the ref photo. How did you paint the music?
It is so perfect.

Terrific colors and composition. Wonderful detail.

Thanks everyone, this is a very nice song and I found fitting for this piece. The notes were challenging to paint and very tedious. I achieved painting them by first drawing them in pencil with a ruler. Later I painstakingly painted them in with a 1 round. This was a very slow process. It was very difficult to keep everything straight and to maintain a typed look.

I will post a detail later after I take a picture.

You must have the patience of a saint Ian, and I'd love it on my wall!
