The Master and his Violin by Jann Ashworth

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

This was my first water color that I had done in 1979 as part of a class assignment prior to graduation from Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada. Watercolor was a very challenging medium due to it’s unforgiving nature….once down it was pretty much there to stay so needless to say it took very careful applications and I was pleased with the results. The palette was limited to 5 colors.
The painting was done from a photo from a magazine and if recall correctly it was Stradavarius and his violin.
