Marilyn Monroe by AEvision Marilyn Monroe by AEvision
A pencil drawing of Marilyn Monroe which I did a couple of years ago. This portrait was displayed in a local art exhibition in 2002 and was among the " top 3" best portraits of the exhibition. :)

I love the softness of this. Although, (not a criticism) some of the light on her face seems too bright. It might be my monitor.
