Thanks in advance folks.
I thought I’d have a go at doing a free hand portrait of Sophia Loren. No wait, it’s Raquel Welch. … hang on a sec’ those were both brunette’s.
Ahhh yes it’s Marilyn Monroe of course! Duh!!
Anyone under the age of 30 or who’s been living under a rock probably won’t recognise this lady, ( I hope my drawing isn’t that bad that can’t you don’t recognise her!)
I had a photo of her on my PC and I just set about doing a free hand version of it directly from the monitor. I thought it turned out pretty good, except the mischievous expression in the photo sorta morphed into a smoldering come to bed expression instead. But that ain’t such a bad thing eh?
Entirely done with various grades of graphite pencils on 160g paper.
