    Funnily enough, I know this musician, and like his playing quite a bit. (I like rembetiko a little more though!). It is wonderful that you are painting traditional musicians and their instruments! It makes me want to paint my dear friend Kosta playing his lyra, or his bouzouki :P

    Aside from the subject, this is of course a wonderful painting! I adore that you have captured the expression so well, and the tonal work is esquisite!

  • Hey Jasmin, that’s very encouraging comment. Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
