Serenade me gently.
Sing to me dearly.
Let the world know of your wonderful sound.
Let the angels sing with the music you have found.

I focused on technique today and aimed for finer pencil strokes and color. This took me an hour to complete since I was being careful on each lines I draw. The hardest part there is the strings of the violin. I didn’t use any lifting technique. I just avoided not to color on the white part of the strings and then just added some gray for the string’s shade. The body of the violin is composed of a lot of colors. I used some shades of oranges and browns to get almost how the violin actually looks like.

I hope you like it. Have a great day! πŸ˜€

  1. Marvelous, sweet Mel–I love it!!! God bless you abundantly today. I wonder if you’d mind if I adopt you (unofficially)? love, “Auntie” Caddo


  2. This drawing really speaks to me. I took violin lessons for many years and while I never was very good, the lines and sound of a violin are still so beautiful to me. Thanks for bringing that back to me today. πŸ™‚


  3. when the music sweet does play..know that I’m not far away…lyrics from a song by Cape Bretoners Bruce Guthro and Natalie MacMaster. That is what i thought when i saw this today! It is a song that brings my father back to me every time i hear it. He passed about 17 years ago and each time I play, my kids play, or I see a violin..that is what I think about! Listen to the song Mel and thank you for this gift today!


    1. That is a sweet and lovely song…no wonder it’ll make you remind of your father. Nice message too, the violin plays like it is weeping! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚


    1. I’m not much of a fan of its strikingly high pitched sound..but I do love it when an expert plays the violin especially when matched up with another instrument like piano, guitar or cello. I would love to try playing a harp though if given the chance. It’s not available in my place. πŸ˜€


  4. I know! I love how the sound rings, but has this really slight edge to it, as well. I have no idea where you learn how to play something like this.

    And if you’re really crazy, you learn something like this:


    1. If I’m not mistaken, they self-studied on that. Each glass represents a note. So, just by tapping on the correct notes we can play any piece on any instrument (the basic at least). But the hardest part I think there is tuning the glass harp and keeping the notes sound the same. If it is stored here in our place, I’m sure the water will evaporate easily. lol


Tell me what you think :)
