Sketchbook drawing, jazz vibraphone

Sketchbook drawing, ink and watercolour, jazz vibraphone, A4 sketchbook
Really great time drawing a vibraphonist. Amazing instrument; its pedal lifting the bars like a breathing ribcage, the little rotating dics atop the tubes like tiny gills. Not to mention the sound. From an artistic point of view it's a fabulous subject as it's so physical to play. A figure study with a nice perspective challenge. Much more difficult than it looks!
