Companion drawing



This was drawn at the same time as the piano player, in the dark. It's even more fragmentary, that's why I didn't post it before. I'm pretty sure only a Trini could guess what it aims to represent. The complete solution would be the names of the two people and the event. Together with the drawn-in-the-dark clue and the time of year, there's just a chance someone might get it. If not I'll post the solution here in a few days.

I'm thinking jazz musicians but couldn't be more specific?

Now I really like this - much more than the last one - and I kind of don't care what it is ( in a nice way). Often our best drawings are quick. I once went to the back rooms of the British museum to see Turner's sketch books and was blown away by his fragmentary, intuitive work.

If the clue is in the piano then it is likely to be drums but it could be a steel drum player with the Carribean connection.
Awaiting the answer!

Yep Finchley land girl, spot on with the steel drum (or pan as we call it here).

So you have a pianist and a pannist (they're not often seen together), being drawn by me in the dark . . . but they're not in the dark. Anything further would need research outside of here, doubt that lateral thinking alone can do it. The time of year can still help. Solution in 24 hours . . .

Stumbled onto your blog by accident, and am glad I did. Not too many people acknowledge the steel pan. I have a dear friend who owns six and they were all made by Ellie Mannette, the father of steel drums. Sure love the piece and when I saw it, I immediately knew what it was.

Thanks for visiting Bleubeard and Elizabeth and for comment. Your friend's steel pans are either collector's items already or will be, made by Ellie Mannette himself, he's pretty much a national hero.
