The Violin

The last one for now and my favorite painting from Sherlock Holmes series – Violin.


It was challenging, but very interesting to paint wooden texture and to learn something about violin: how is it made and how it looks from the side, what parts are flat and what are sticking out and how much. I needed this information to make it look more realistic and to paint a realistic shadow.

I used white colored pencil to add some highlights and draw strings and hair attached to the bow.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by,

    • Thank you, Kathy! Sorry for my late reply! I’m a journalist by profession, but I studied interior design (500 hours) and now I’m taking watercolor classes online and illustration classes also. But I was painting in childhood on my own since the age of 2 or 3)

  1. I can see why this is your favourite. It looks so, so good! Violins are such a pleasing shape, aren’t they? I think you did them justice. Have you got another series lined up?
