It was pretty surprising to hear my childhood songs highlighted by saxophone, while I was drawing trees and brunches for old people.  My father use to collect songs, so I heard many from old times and they dear to my heart.
I outlined the figure of musician and the rest dissolved into the light. I used ink and gold watercolor for saxophone, it doesn't scan well.

What an absolutely exquisite piece, Nikira! And so much detail too. I'll bet this man would easily recognize himself and would so love this painting if he could see it.

Thank you very much CrimsonLeaves! He knows, he didn't see the result yet but will look later. Something very attractive about musicians, how they able to touch our hearts. For me it is a mystery how it changes our mood, pure magic. Science is still to discover the influence of music on our brain. :-)
