The Story

After seeing my other Bandoneon study; a craftsman who restores old Bandoneons challenged me to draw an example of the elaborately decorated Gebrüder Meinel 142.

It was an interesting challenge to draw the inlaid mother of pearl decoration and to represent the wear on the handles

I love how this design contrasts with the “Double A”, I hope to draw more Bandoneons soon.
