The aboriginals of Australia play this instrument known as a didgeridoo. It consists of a eucalyptus branch hollowed out by widgety-grubs (I'm not making this up.) It is typically 1.5 meters long. The instrument is notoriously difficult to play as it requires a circular breathing technique. This makes it possible to play a single note for hours on end. In the hands of a master, it can play up to two notes, but not simultaniously. Sometimes, concerts are given in which the didgeridoo plays the lead part. If you must know what one sounds like, it can be heard in the background of some of the Crocodile Dundee movies.

This is a color study done in Painter, for a watercolor commission I landed recently. I would be interested in critique, please.
