Sketching an orchestra

I had the opportunity to sketch another orchestra rehearsal last night. I really enjoy trying to sketch the players while listening to lovely music. Last night there was Mozart, Ravel and Beethoven.
I started by sketching the soloist, then tackled a few violinists

 We moved upstairs so I was able to see the wind players and really enjoyed sketching this cellist.


  1. So beautiful! What orchestra was it? I am a professional violist! Cheers, Carolyn Mooz

    1. It was the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, with Jane Rutter as the soloist. You are a lady of many talents aren't you? I play(ed) piano - a bit lonely in comparison.
