Playing for dinner

Tony Compton

This is a watercolour of a lad playing for some money to feed himself and his dog. I spent a day at a popular tourist town, this dedicated lad stayed in the same spot playing the whole six hours that i was there. It was quite cold so before i left i praised his music and gave him some money.. i was inspired by his dedication and willpower but also the fact that he seemed to be smiling and happy the whole time. For me this is what i love about art.. to be able to capture an inspirational moment.
