here’s my latest drawing finished, hope you like it.I chose a reference that hasn’t been drawn before, then I changed her expression from surprise to worried…………. lets face it, at that time of her life I think she would have been…….
marilyn, monroe, portrait, graphite, pencil, women, female, woman, black, white, carbon, powder, charcoal, brush
Superb drawing John. The expression is spot on. I have a very old book called “Marilyn Mon Amour” by ex – war photographer Andre De Deines. Mainly of Norma Jean – pre MM but there’s a photo of her with a similar expression.
thanks John. hey awesome, was she reading a book?

you Sir, are a MASTERFUL artist. I love that you possess not only the skills of drawing and rendering beautifully and accurately, but that you can take the piece to a higher level by working your magic and reanimating the subtlites of the facial mucsles to pull her features into another expression. you captures her unique beauty and vulnerablity so well. bravo.
thanks so much Yvonca, you are gorgeous!!!
Her expression is perfect, and your drawing is incredible!!! Couldn’t be any better John.
