Barefoot Pianist

James Fitzwilliam accompanied the Bard College Symphonic Chorus in a concert last night. I painted him in watercolor and gouache from the fourth row of the audience.  

Fitzwilliams is a dedicated barefooter all year round, including in the winter. He says that "it provides during performances the benefit of increased sensitivity to the instrument and better pedal control at both the organ and the piano."

Playing barefoot reminds me of Pelé! :)
