Soft Music by Bilou020285 Soft Music by Bilou020285
Portrait of Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) playing his violin. Mechanical and white pencil on a Daler & Rowney recycler paper.
About 10 cm high.
The face was a real challenge because of the tiny surface I had on the sheet. But I like challenge ! :D
I don't know why, but when I imagine Sherlock Holmes plays violin it's always Tchaikovsky's Concerto for violin in D Major. Which is a beautiful piece of music.

Merci beaucoup ! :blowkiss: Ravie qu'il te plaise ! C'était pas évident à cette échelle de transcrire l'émotion du visage... 
Le papier est génial, très agréable à travailler et permet d'ajouter de la lumière ce qui ne gâche rien... ;)

Décidément, que j'aime l'association du crayon et du blanc sur ce papier !! C'est un régal ! Allez, je m'en vais m'installer confortablement et écouter Mr Sherlock jouer ce Concerto de Tchaikovsky. ;) (Wink)  Bravo Caro !

Merci beaucoup Manon ! Ravie que tu l'apprécies ! :blowkiss: J'ai investi dans un carnet de cette gamme un peu plus grand. Parce que 11 par 15 cm c'est un peu juste.... J'ai bien cru ne pas arriver à reproduire le visage... J'ai gommé le nez au moins une dizaine de fois ! Mais le papier tient bien, c'est un vrai régal. Le crayon blanc en plus donne de jolies reliefs. :nod: Ah, le concerto pour violon de Tchaikovsky est une pure merveille. L'un de mes morceaux classiques préférés ! Bonne écoute ! :thumbsup: ;)

Great work !
Tchaikovsky's Concerto for violin in D Major is one of my favourite piece of music of all time I think. It suits Sherlock Holmes perfectly !

Merci beaucoup ! Je suis très touchée ! :blowkiss: Le concerto pour violon de Tchaikovsky est aussi un de mes morceaux classiques préférés, il exprime beaucoup de nuances et d'émotions et demande une maîtrise impressionnante au violoniste. Je rêverai de le voir en live, tu as beaucoup de chance d'avoir vécu cette expérience ! :nod:

Hélas je n'ai pas vécu cette expérience...
J'aime tellement la version de Jascha Heinfetz que lorsque j'entends une autre interprétation, je la trouve trop lente... J'ai presque peur d'être déçue...

Oui, je vois ce que tu veux dire. Il avait une certaine célérité, je plains l'orchestre philharmonique qui devait le suivre... :D

Les autres versions paraissent presque chiante à côté... mais c'est une question d'habitude je pense. En live ça doit quand même donner des frissons...

Je possède une version du concerto joué par Alfredo Campoli et le London Philarmonic Orchestra qui est aussi très belle mais en effet beaucoup enlevée que celle de Heinfetz... Mais en live, oui, ce serait vraiment une sacrée expérience ! Je devrais éplucher les programmes de toutes les salles de concert pour dénicher un live comme celui-ci... :nod: Ca et la 7e de Beethoven... Le rêve ! ;)
