Laura Young

5"X7" Pencil on paper

Laura played at St Barnabas last night in the Guitar Niagara series. The program was beautiful and her playing astonishing. The only thing more remarkable than her playing is her hair of which there is a prodigious amount. This time the lights in the church stayed up a little higher which made it a bit easier to draw, but she is an animated player, never still for a moment. There was a temptation to produce a picassoesque composition, with different parts drawn from different angles. There is definitely something strange about her left arm.

Laura is a Toronto born musician who currently lives in Barcelona and teaches at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya.

  1. Nice sketch Sarah, I like the intensity of her gaze, like she's only hearing and not seeing.

  2. Hi Sarah
    You have captured the tension in her playing.
    I love her pose, especially her left hand which appears to me that the fingers are moving.
