I created this from several photos of her. The hair was as she had begun wearing it just before she died. The Gold Lame dress has always been a fave of mine. Orig size appx 16x6" at 300 ppi. One layer.

Looking at her I thought "Gosh, I didn't know her so..."
Creative interpretation of existing sources makes it possible, if combined with clear artistic vision of subject. Well painted indeed :)

Sandy, BB, Coops, Strandy, Amanda - Thanks for the Wonderful Comments.
The first time I did a painting of her, I was still in school. Over the years, I have probably painted a few dozen images. I can actually paint that face from memory. Obsessed?! Who?!

This portrait is spectacularly chiselled indeed! An actress I've been always deeply in love with decades ago (although I was a kid and it was not clear enough to me all the reasons why):D. You painted a real marvel here in an amazing way!
