I have been wanting to add another melodeon to my musical instrument series since my first one has been so popular. This particular instrument belongs in the collection of Dan Possumato who is a professional button accordion player specializing in the traditional music and songs of Ireland. I painted this with a combination of Daniel Smith Primatek and Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paints on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. These single pigment paints in conjunction with the coarse grained paper really help to add textures and interest to the piece.
A version of this particular painting graces the cover of the traditional Irish folk album "Pulling Out The Stops," by Dan Possumato which can be purchased through Claddagh records.
