This trombonist is a member of a contemporary serious music ensemble which goes by the name of ‘Sounds Positive’. I painted portraits of the members purely for my own pleasure. I made drawings and took photographs during their rehearsals and concerts. This is of a rare moment when the trombonist was quiet. Normally he is anything but quiet and is as exciting to watch as he is to hear. If you click on the link it will take you to other Sounds Positive paintings.
