The London City Orchestra have opened their doors to me. Which is brilliant.
The previous few musical sketches were from my initial meeting with them, but now I have access to their rehearsals and it is an amazing thing.
The relationship between musician and instrument is even more complicated to draw than I had expected.
Violins, ( see previous post ) their curves are so specific, and to draw them right and in perspective as they are played. It does your head in.
And the French Horn !
Seriously. Who designed that in the first place. I spent all my time just working out where the tubes all went. And not even that yet.
Amused that the glibness of my sketching style goes out the window as I try to decipher what I am actually looking at.
But looking forward to some great sketching.
Thanks to all at LCO for this opportunity.
