Fiddle scroll II, Kim Rempel - SOLD

I did this subject a month ago and wanted to re-visit it. Something quite intoxicating about the form of a violin - curvy shapes and swirls contrasting with hard, straight edges. Complex and fun. The wood colour is an interesting challenge too. I find the colours of what I'm actually seeing are much richer than what I think they would be if I let my mind slip into auto-pilot.
6" x 6" / oil on panel / $75

Beautiful, rich colors, Kim! You did a great job with the values in the wood. You transition from the light side to the shadow side is just gorgeous.

Lovely form and great shadows. Something enticing about the intricacies of musical instruments.

Kim, this is so beautiful. You are giving me ideas...I have a handmade Portuguese ukelele and mandolin. Hmmm...

I really love this, Kim. The rich color of the scroll and the great contrast makes this painting a winner!
