Glamour Queens from the Golden Age of the Movies


A glamorous week with portraits of movie queens from the golden age of cinema. We draughted a likeness and then painted it using just the three primary colours; with the optional addition of yellow ochre. Painting from light to dark was the safest approach, starting with the skin. Good results all round I think. All faces vary, so drawing them is an infinite exercise. Also, there is no one way of drawing or painting; that’s what makes art an individual experience.
