When your heart grows cold by Marie-Esther When your heart grows cold by Marie-Esther
Mixed media (watercolours, coloured pencils, pen) on thick smooth paper, size A3

Keeping up with my personal portraits and with the idea of overlaying faces.

So once again, I used two different reference pictures for this one, this time by the amazing GretaTu :icongretatu: . I'm in love with her pictures (expecially those of this model), so check out her gallery for more inspiring photography!

This one is meant to be a sort of icon of rationality, the way I see it. Geometric, cold. The rationality we need when people, or even our emotions hurt us.

Reason saves us as much as it can hold us back.

"I see a ship in the harbor,
I can and shall obey,

But if it wasn't for your misfortune,
I'd be a heavenly person today. 

And I thought I was mistaken,
and I thought I heard you speak 

Tell me, how do I feel
Tell me now, how should I feel. 

Now I stand here waiting...
 

I thought I told you to leave me
when I walked down to the beach. 

Tell me how does it feel, when your heart grows cold"

This is a very beautiful, emotional piece. I can clearly see the emotion in the woman's eyes. The shading and lighting is great, if not amazing. Though a little more of a blurred look right below the chin could have made it a bit better.
The contrast between colors really helps the eyes stand out too. Yet with the gray, it gives it a sort of " lost grace". Adding blue in hair made it stand out more, very beautiful this is.
It's very original, as far as i know. I've never seen anything like it. And the detail you put into the hair and eyes, it's very real.
And the other face there, When i look at it it gives me the feeling she's reflecting back on an old self, or maybe an old friend or loved one. Either way, a great feeling of loss and sorrow reflects in her eyes. Amazing, beautiful, passionate.
This is one of the most inspirational works i've seen in a long time.

This is one of those instant classics. It has a very intriguing, vintage look. That dark blue makes it so cold and intense mixed with those hard black lines. Very angry emotion in that face. Bravo, beautiful!

This is super cool! Very surreal. :heart: I love the face-within a face thing that's going on here, and the colouring is beautiful.
