The Colours of My Notes

Leonardo, Age 11

I am depicted as playing my guitar, my feelings woven into notes, the notes woven into colours and more feelings. I carved three individual stamps out of lino blocks: one for the shadows, then one for the splashes of the colours, and finally one for the outlines. The midnight blue symbolises the commitment and determination required to study the guitar, the sky blue represents the calmness when playing, and the reds and yellows the passion and spirit of playing music.
