Marilyn Monroe was completed in about 3 days time. Solely using black and white I tested my hand at portraits again. It has been a few years since I worked on a portraits but I am so happy that I did. Marilyn posed a challenge that in which I gladly accepted. The one thing I have noticed with many portraits is that if they are not well known and the image isn’t done exactly to par then no one will notice the mistake but the artist. But if they are well known, or have a face that everyone knows, then you need to be diligent and make it happen. Marilyn posed that problem to me. I needed to get her done correctly as she is an icon that so much as a hair out of place or wrong shadow on her lip someone would notice. They may not say anything but the artist would know.
