64 / 99 The Composer - second try

Now the eyes are better for Mister composer.
I like him more than yesterday's try.
I tried to take Claude Debussy as a reference.

 The music paper I used is very old and I think I have to be  careful when
 gluing him into my journal. Can you see the tear in the paper?  Beside this I recognized now that I used the sheet music upside down -  music authorities may forgive me this little accident!

  8. Hallo Susi,
    also mir persönlich hat Composer I besser gefallen, obowhl diese Erdtöne haben auch was und es wirkt gesamt doch sehr harmonisch.

  10. Hallo Susi,
    ein super gut gelungene Journal Seite! Gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut. Toll!
    Liebe Grüße und ein schönes, kreatives Wochenende,

  11. Wunderschöne Journalseite! Das aussdrucksstarke Portrait gefällt mir sehr. Das von gestern ist auch schön, aber die Augen sind hier lebendiger, finde ich!
    Liebe Grüße, Annette

  12. I like your overlay with the new eyes and the more muted colors, but I also liked your first composer with his colorful and wonky eyes. xox

  13. Beautiful Susi! I never would have noticed the music notes were upside down, the eye goes directly to your gorgeous portrait. hugs :)

  14. Wunderschön wieder das Gesicht von diesem Mann so in alter Zeit der Hintergrund mit dazu .. klasse liebe Susi

    Schönes Wochenende wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  16. Ooh wonderful,you do male faces so well Susi and I wouldn't have noticed the music sheet being upside down!

  17. A very handsome composer today Susi, it would be interesting to hear someone play the music. the tear adds to the aged look of the page.

  18. The "feeling" of the music is there and I would not have noticed that you have it upside down ;-)
    Claude looks very handsome.
    I enjoyed both versions of him very much!
    I think that drawing male faces is an extra challenge and you are doing them exceedingly well ♥ liebe Susi.

  19. Oh this is gorgeous! Your pallette is so fitting for old sheet music and composer. Very well done.

  20. Wow - großartiges Portrait! Ein sehr lebendiger Gesichtsausdruck! Mir gefällt besonders die Mischung von Kohle und Pastell mit Acryl.
    Liebe Grüße

  21. Der Blick ist grandios intensiv - irre gut! Schönen Sonntag von Ulrike

  22. Sehr gelungen!! der gefällt mir auch besser als der Vorige.
    LG Anja

  23. Love your page Susi a lot of my pages end up with upside work on it x

  24. Brilliant - I love this face and I would never have known that the music was upside down! Hugs, Chrisx

  25. You are so very creative! I love your awesome collage style and impressionistic faces. <3

  26. Oh wow. I was super impressed that you drew that face on sheet music. Although I noticed the tear, I thought it was planned. I didn't notice the sheet music was upside down till you mentioned it. It's lovely, anyway.

  27. Die Augen vom schönen Monsieur Debussy sind wirklich ein wunderbarer Hingucker. Wer bitte, liebe Susi, schaut denn bei solchen Augen schon auf die Richtung der Noten?
