I sketched this musician about three times each time quite unhappy with the composition.  I knew that I liked his hat, his guitar and his red socks but he was sitting very stiff and upright and that was how I was drawing him.  Finally I decided that if I was going to like the final painting, I was going to put aside the reality of his pose and use more “swing.”

  1. Love this one Carolee!

  2. Red socks:) He looks like he is in the midst of really playing. Funny how we sometimes sketch exactly what we see.

  3. Looks class, love the hat as well
