Charcoal drawing of a violinist on A2 cartridge paper. This drawing was developed form a series of sketches of the band Cold Light Ensemble; a Jazz group from Buckinghamshire. I initially sketched their debut performance sitting hidden up in the balcony and then produced a series of more developed charcoal and pastel studies back in my studio.
Within the drawing I have tried to capture the wonderful movement of the musicians as they play which I hope also gives a sense of the music they were creating.
