Street musicians

I was in Kilkenny a few weeks ago and I came across two young musicians playing in the street. One playing a trumpet and the other a viola, at least, I think it was a viola, to a non musician like me. I thought what an unusual combination, but the music sounded great.The painting below is based on that scene. I broke up the colour and made it impressionistic and hopefully energetic.

Oil on linen board 8x6 ins.
