In-Progress oil painting
"Singing the Blues"
(still needs shadows, details and of course...bird legs)
I have been searching for an old "double bass" instrument to photograph for some future paintings. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to take pictures of the beautiful Amati violin on my previous post, as well as the cello. I am still looking for the "double bass" to paint a full sized piece, but in the mean time....I also am so lucky to live so close to the new "Musical Instrument Museum." This museum called the "MIM" is the most wonderful museum and collection of musical instruments from every country in the world. Last spring I took some pictures there, (which they let you do as long as you do not use the flash) I photographed the beautiful old "double bass" below.
