Marilyn in the Elegant Writer


This tutorial by Bryn Nguyen for Awesome Art school came out so cool! Marilyn Monroe is a favorite of my husband Sandy. He collects books and photos of her. I gave the piece to him early framed in gold for Xmas. I couldn't wait!

The whole bottom part of this picture was done with an Elegant Writer Pen and water. The rest of Marilyn was done using a variety of pens. I took the reference photo and put it in a program, which I found on line to change it into a line drawing. I used my light pad to transfer those lines onto Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper.

This was a fun project at Awesome Art School.
