Just finished this up last night...
"Portrait of Toby Wing" - For those that aren't familiar with her, Toby was a chorus girl and actress in the 1930's, usually showing up in either a Paramount or Warner Bros picture. She appeared in several of those famous Busby Berkely musical numbers, often being one of the "Close-up girls". She was photographed and publicized constantly and even has a star on the Holly wood walk of fame! Not bad considering almost all of her film appearances are uncredited bit parts!
All colored pencil on 15" x 15" strathmore 500 series tinted paper. I used only 2 colors, dark umber and white, which is something I never tried before but I wanted to emulate the vintage sepia look of the old movie star photos. Also, I rarely ever make a square picture and for some reason I rarely ever draw blondes!
