This is one of a series of five works based on musical instruments and responses to musical sounds. Bennett uses the repeated shapes of valves, keys, rods and sound-holes to make bold close-up studies. David Bennett spent his childhood in the Woodford Valley, five miles north of Salisbury. In 1996, after a career in teaching, he decided to become a freelance illustrator. His versatility lends itself to a wide variety of work that encompasses: logo design, murals, caricatures and book illustrations. His portfolio includes logos for the Larmer Tree Festival and National Federation of Zoological Gardens and archaeological reconstructions for the National Trust stone circles at Avebury and Castlerigg (Cumbria).
