Whoa Sheila, this is wonderful...you really captured her likeness! I love the strong strokes in the background and skirt...well done!
Lovely work, Sheila. Great detail of the figure against the bold background. Also love how you handled the delicate dress.
Sheila, this is very, very nice. Like Dana, I love the strong background compared to the softness of Marilyn, very dramatic. Also, your handling of those many sheer layers in the skirt, wow. I can't wait to see it in person to study it up close!
The gesture of Marilyn is perfect! And you did a great job on dress, especially her skirt. Very nice!
Worth the wait. Fabulous piece, I love the strokes and the mood. Very nice.
I will be the first one to see it.Cannot wait Sheila. The dress is what I love the most.Worth the wait...
You really have the power and drive of capturing things and I like the way you have captured her mood here.
Terrific, Sheila!! The dress fabric (taffeta?) is so well-done. The background is effectively dramatic, the pose is great...just an overall super piece.
Great piece Sheila. Not an easy pose, but you handled it beautifully.
Well done, Sheila. That is a tricky foreshortening and you handled it beautifully.
Nice work, Sheila! Takes me back to when I was a little girl and started realizing how much sway the glamorous starlets had -- the President no less was taking time out for this one... pretty incredible. Great job. I might do my next one in colored pencils, too.
Love it!! You've caught her vulnerability and sex appeal perfectly.
OMG....I can't believe this slipped by me for so long! I'm sorry, Sheila. I must have thought I had already commented.I love this painting! And MM is still one of my very favorites among the movie stars!
