    Pastoral zampogne time

    My old tablet didn't work properly anymore all of sudden, so I had problems sketching and going on with it yesterday, thus I changed the approach to a naif one, used the mouse and got this weird style ...
    I hope You don't dislike it too much ...

    I quite like this loose style dear Cesare
    Also I wouldn't like to say I could get half that good if I had to use a mouse.

    I like it, Caesar! I´m with mannafig--I couldn´t do anything nearly as well with a mouse. I tried a few times just for fun and it was a disaster.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    I think you did an excellent job Caesar, it is very difficult to use the mouse, but it seems you also have the knack for mouse and pen, very nice job

    The zampogna our sheperds ancient instruments are like the Scottish pipes except that they have two chanters instead than one (otherwise they are called ciaramella). They are also different in size depending on the region (all in centre and south Italy hough).
    The most popular song we have at Christmas, Tu scendi dalle stelle, a two and hald century old one You can hear in all our churces, is marvellous to hear with them playing.

    Thank You very much Amanda, Scott and Pat!

    Excellent job you did with the mouse...I cant paint at all with the mouse
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Woah Cesare, I can relate to Scott and Amanda, I cannot draw with the mouse, or do not have the patience to try. Good artwork dear friend!

    Thank You, dear Semd74! I just didn't want to throw away a not so bad sketch and composition after I discovered the problem with the old tablet ...

    Dear Sandra, probably i got some skill when I was a kid and I sould draw also with gig and blunt chalk stones on the pavement ahead of my first home ...
    Thank You!

    Dear Anna, the sheperds are probably shivering because of the cold weather on the nearby mountains the came from ... The cherubin is a good boy or girl (never talk of angels sex to be concrete ), but maybe also a smart little rascal, as far as it is allowed in Heaven. Thank You!

    Excellent job Caesar...
    Takes more than being forced to use a mouse to stop a talent like yours.
