I found this intial design for Eva before I decided to turn it into the hot and sexy Tom Jones, ’She’s A Lady’ So I decided to go ahead and repaint and turned it back into a sexy, elegant Eva Perón. Here is my version of ‘Eva’, from one of my favorite musicals and then movie, ‘Evita’. In this, one of my historical portraits, I tried to capture the flair of the the 1930’s and ’40’s Eva, Actress, First Lady of Argentinia, Saint?. Above is a memorable clip from the movie, ’Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’, I love Elaine Paige, but to my suprise when I played the song side by side, Madonna won out. FLASH!——- Found the ultimate version :-), ‘NO LLORES POR MI ARGENTINA’.

    Please, holy Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
    For I love you, tell Heaven I`m doing my best
    I`m praying for you, even though you`re already blessed

    Please, mother Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
    For I love you [(Che:) Turn a blind eye, Evita] Tell Heaven I`m doing my best [(Che:) Turn a blind eye]
    I`m praying for you, even though you`re already blessed

    (I had to play 6 different characters in that Musical.. I was the only bass.. thanks for the memory flashback.. and super finish and treatment.. awesome)

  • like Eva. Thank you for the beautiful words.

    Oh, man, Norval, this one might be my favorite of yours. It’s understated color is simply divine.

  • Thank you Frannie, color self control was hard to maintain. :-D

    Gorgeous creation. The colors and the face are superbly done.

  • Thank you Bunny, the image might have one more reincarnation, I have just the line drawing, I may do a very understated interpretation. I like to do multiples with different looks.

    oh wow love it Norval we seem to love the same ladies i did a work of her when she was younger ,,,love it

  • Thank you, Bev, I would love to see it. I like ladies that show a true caring, Dorothy Day, Eva, Mother Teresa and the Sisters of Mercy. And I don’t say this lightly about Eva, I loved ‘Evita’ so I researched and found out everything I could about Eva.

    Beautiful work!
    See, I told you about the super colorful…. I have to make it a fav now :)

  • Lenora, don’t avoid color, it is a joy, explore it, use it when you want and not worry about it influencing your black and white work. Actually it can make it better, because it heightens your perception. As an artist you control your world.
