Day twenty two - Buddha Head

A new week, a new challenge. This one is right outside my comfort zone, I'll try to do seven faces. I'm cheating with the first one because it's the face of a sculpture. Today's entry for naarmamo ... 


 

Soft pastels on a pale blue Ingress Pad. A 6th century Chinese sculpture of a Buddha's head, part of an exhibition that is shortly coming to the New South Wales Art Gallery.

That's beautiful. The shading you've done around the eyes is particularly fine.

Thank you. I think being a sculpture made the definition of the eyes easier to capture.

That's excellent and beautiful! I've seen heads like that in Thailand.

I don't think you'll have a problem with faces!

Thank you. I was happy with the result overall; the subject being a sculptured head made it easier to draw I think.
