Love the colours in this - Very soft, and yet so rich

That's an interestion concept... I really like how you played the blues and greens of the water off the varnish on one side, it really helps tie the violin into the painting :)

Wow, thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked the concept - I'm always concerned with that.

Well done :) It's si hard to draw a violin correctly '^^
At first time, I though "I violin in... in the water ?! OMG poor violin, he's dead" ;p
Realy good :)

Thank you so much! Yes, they are hard to draw - it took me a very long time just to get the shape right. Like a few hours (though I think there's some mistakes still). I would hope to never see an a actual violin in water! xD

Thank you so much, I'm glad the concept is interesting. You should play it if you still have it!

Yeah I'm a music major at school now. :XD: I got a new violin before the summer, but my old one that I had had for 7 years was the same color as the one in your artwork.

Haha that's awesome, it was probably a student model like mine then! I'll be getting a better one soon ... though I still love this one. It's just loud and tinny-sounding. xD

I should have guessed by your name you might have been a music major. Good luck in your endeavors, and never stop playing. :)
