Another open mic session but with a variety of artists.  One musician asked me to sketch his guitar and I found it to have a real nice set of details and color that I went home and added these details.  Guitars are a work of art in themselves and I don’t do it enough justice when sketching on site as you have to be quick to get the gesture and personality of the musician.  It is a very sensitive subject matter as every musician knows their guitar inside and out so I try best to get the likeness of the guitar from the head down to the body shape.  The fiddle is a another issue altogether as it is much smaller but has more curves and details you cannot leave out.  As with anything else, it takes practice and with more time I hope to get better at drawing the instruments as they do shape the performer and it is the focus of the event.
