    Marilyn, Immortal Icon

    This is one of the faces I can paint from memory. I first sketched her when I was about 13. Since then, I have probably painted a hundred different versions. Whenever I feel a bit "blocked, I do an image of her. Orig size appx 3600x2400x200. One layer. Oils.

    The hair is rather modern and spikey for a starlet of this vintage (though that could be attributable to the artist's style), but you made her very sexy and those eyes are deadly vulnerable and deep. Amazingly good personality you got as we have come to know her through all the bios.

    Really quite good Skylar.

    Excellent portrait of the old gal...I like it a lot !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Skylar... a wonderful work.. the years of connection to her and empathy with her show in the soulfullness of this work. the hair has a modern look but the rest is pure Marilyn...really a super job.

  9. Wow, this is pretty amazing. Really nice work Skylar. Funny, I've commented on three of your pieces specifically today, yet didn't set out to do so - your work is just resonating well with me I guess
