Marilyn Monroe is an iconic figure who, even now, elicits various emotions but also wonder at her beauty. I have completed a few movie stars using sepia tones and this image of "Norma Jean" is striking, with memories of old movies being created.
I am unable to find the original photographer for the reference photo I used, as this image is all over the internet, but I hope his/her family are happy with my interpretation.
As with all my artwork, I have soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum Colourfix pastel paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks in layers to give the three-dimensional effect to this completed portrait of Marilyn.
This unique and detailed pastel artwork is 12 inches by 16 inches and supplied with a gold frame, 22 inches by 18 inches. All my artworks are delivered free by courier in the UK, with ten greetings cards included in the price.
I also offer a 14-day money-back guarantee if you are not happy. There is more about my shipping policy HERE...
