Lockdown 29 The Violin Maker

The violin maker
A revisited version of a portrait created in 2020

The genesis of this project was a conversation in the violin maker’s workshop. Ostensibly I was there to help Giovanni with his English. In reality I was fascinated with the process of violin making. When the lockdown struck I had some preparatory drawings, little more. The rest had to be drawn together from memory. The preparatory images made during this time were invaluable to the creation of this picture.
