Mix It Monthly Challenge - Feathers from Da Vinci

Over on the Mix It Monthly Challenge Conny has a challenge for us here to use a feather and the colors of mint green, grey and hibiscus. I found this picture in our local magazine of a man who shines shoes in our town. He has such an interesting face. I wanted to draw his weathered, interesting face so I decided to draw him for the challenge. I will never capture him exactly but it was fun to try.

You really captured the lifelines of your soul man. And the colours and feather soften his features. How interesting, how everyone of us joining "Mix it Monthly" has the same frame and comes out with completely different creations? How inspiring!
