Flute Master

Still exploring acrylics in my life drawing sessions, but I've been practicing some painting techniques from home as well. Trying to stay loose in my approach to the canvas because it's so easy to tense up and work too close to one area.

I did struggle with the flute placement while working with photo references....I probably ended up re-painting the flute and hands 3 times. But I think I'm happy with the end result. Still thinking of adding a more interesting background, but for now I will leave the painting as is.
