Moonlight Sonata by Aegils Moonlight Sonata by Aegils
When describing Moonlight Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven words are something unnecessary. Even though the composition is quite sad and rather gloomy it is also extraordinarily beautiful and is the one piece of piano music I cannot live without.

As you can see by the name, this artwork is inspired by Beethoven’s composition. Hope you all like it, although it isn’t a Christmas composition…

Yes, I'm aware of the irony... Moonlight Sonata is a piano composition and there's a violin in this... but I said this is inspired not the real thing =p
(*shhh* don't tell anyone, the piano will figure in my next artwork :giggle:)






:bulletred: Full view recommended! :heart:

Let's see, anything I can contribute that is more original than "beautiful"?... How 'bout "*hauntingly* beautiful"? Has anyone said that yet? Oh, well. It is what it is. And it is truly beautiful.

Hmm. Well, I've posted a comment asking for a way to contact him about a picture he used on one of his posts. If he gets back to me I'd be sure to let you know. For that matter - would you like to handle it? If he gives me an email I could forward that to you.

That's the model's original size.
I haven't changed it, but this is an old work and perspective-wise is flawed. I might redo it one of these days.

I simply love this picture. It is defiantly well composed, and even though the piece (The Moonlight Sonata) is piano, I feel like this work does it justice. Well done.

Gorgeous and beautiful! Ths only thing that slightly bothers me is the notes coming out of the violin, I think its unecessary - almost cliche...
