This portrait is another in my vintage ladies of the silver screen series. The portrait was hand drawn using Corel Painter Essentials in a water colour style with a Wacom tablet and stylus.

I then added an old photo filter in Photoshop Essentials.

Gloria Swanson (March 27, 1899 – April 4, 1983) was a prominent silent movie star, American actress and fashion icon. In 1929, Swanson was successful in making the transition to movie talkies.

She is best known today for her role as Norma Desmond, a faded silent film star, in the critically acclaimed film Sunset Boulevard (1950). Source Wikapedia

As a child I always had a pencil in my hand and I loved drawing in particular fashion and people.

I am completely self taught love to draw using charcoal, pencil and water colour. Just recently I have explored digital art and I love it.

Portraits of people and animals are my favourite things to draw.

I welcome any enquiries for commissioned pet portraits, invitations, cards and other art work. Thank you for viewing my art work.
