Nocturne In The Mountain Air

I put on some Chopin this evening. When his Nocturne in E flat major came on I decided to do some sketching. I ended up experiencing a sort of meditative drawing session. The completed work is above.

*March 3rd Update: I just submitted this as my Illustration Friday assignment. This week's topic is "Breezy", so I found it appropriate :)

I almost started to cry when i saw this drawing
It`s not because i`m too much emotional it`s because we're going through a big economic crises and you represent a serious competitor!!
It`s hard to know that i have to work better than i could.
I have family to feed specialy eva !!
she is not more bigger than a little smurf but she eats as much as a troll.

Cry??!! You?? Daniel?? NO!
Oh, my gifted brother, I represent nothing more than an eye into the past moment becoming present. The industrialization of the spirit dematerialized into a soft meadow where I romp...in search always, of a place to lie down. To breath it all in.

Oh, and Eva is a smurf now too? My mom was first, now her, I guess I'm next! :)

Way cool--sketching to Chopin. I can't say as I've ever done that, but I think I'll have to give it a try. Lovely drawing too!
