Aphrodite: The Goddess Marilyn Portrait

"Aphrodite" Charcoal and pastel on mylar 20 x 16".

New from the Black Butterfly series, a tribute to Marilyn Monroe from a photograph taken by Bert Stern at the last sitting. I always said I wouldn't draw Marilyn again, la time I was 15, but my friend Val inspired me with her recent portrait of the Goddess and I couldn't resist.

A video inspired by Marilyn's last sitting, the actress's likeness to Monroe is astounding!
