63/99 The Composer

I used some very high pigmented soft pastels for this face

For Art Journal Journey, if music be the food of love, and 99 faces

 I don't like how his eyes turned out - maybe I will try it once again?

There are a few days left for you to take part in our February theme -
did you check out the Pinterest Gallery to see all the linked artwork at one glance?



  1. Great face, very cleverly made. Hugs Valerie who can't sleep and is waiting for coffee....

  2. I have soft pastels with me, yet to try them! I am not sure I can make such beauties of of them though!! Loved the guy's face that you made! :)

  3. Guten Morgen Susi,
    ein sehr attraktiver Mann, mir gefällt das mit den umherhuschenden Augen sehr gut, es macht das Gesicht richtig
    lebendig. Die Farben sind perfekt, vor allem dieser leichte Blau/Türkiston passt hervorragend.
    Ich wünsche dir einen gemütlichen Tag.

  21. Wow! What an intense look on your composers face-I wonder what music he can hear! Hugs, Chrisx

  22. I think I like the colors of this one even more than the one you made second. Yep, I'm working backward, so this one was more colorful and engaging.
