"Seek the strongest color effect possible. The content is of no importance."
This is the first of a series about musical instruments.
I have a passion for creating bold
shapes and vibrant watercolors.
I draw with rubber cement to block the colors and to create the white lines.
I like the repetition and variations of the cello in this watercolor.
The violoncello -almost always abbreviated to CELLO- is a stringed instrument and a member of the violin family.
The cello is popular in many capacities: as a solo instrument, in chamber music, but also as a foundation of the modern orchestral sound.
I used to be a cellist for many years.
I own an Italian dark colored cello, built in 1817 by ANTONIO PUGUESI in Venice.
Does anybody have information about this Italian cello-builder?
