Day 11: Balalaika Player

Watercolor Painting of Balalaika Player

Watercolor of Russian Musician Playing the Balalaika

Illustration from Trubloff Children's Book

Pile of Vintage Children's Books

On the way home from work today I stopped at the thrift store and found several vintage children’s books with beautiful illustrations. I bought them all up (for a total of $2.00!) in hopes of using them as inspiration over the next few weeks.

Tonight, I sketched my balalaika player in pencil and then used paint and sharpie to fill him out. The original illustration that I basically copied comes from the book Trubloff: the Mouse Who Wanted to Play the Balalaika.
