This painting includes two of my most favourite musical instruments, the flute and the mandolin. Since childhood I have always enjoyed listening to and playing music.
After learning to play the Descant and Treble recorder at school, I taught myself to play the guitar. For my 21st birthday I received a flute, which I still enjoy playing today. Whether keyboards, guitar or flute, I have spent many an enjoyable hour playing music, albeit for my own pleasure and.... not necessarily very well. If not playing my instruments I just enjoy being able to see them - each is a beautiful work of art.
With this in mind I decided to portray both my flute and mandolin. Displayed upon a large piece of green velvet with the sheet music as a backdrop, I used coloured pencils, pastels and pen and ink.
