Veronica Lake


I was enjoying drawing with my Elegant Writer pen, when I noticed one eye of my face drawing wasn't right. Not wanting to throw my drawing in the trash, I covered that eye with more hair AKA actress Veronica Lake (hubby's idea). Actress from the 40s, during filming, Lake's long blonde hair accidentally fell over her right eye during a take and created a "peek-a-boo" effect.

I was following a tutorial by Karen Campbell on YouTube. The Elegant Writer is a calligraphy pen. When you go over the lines that are in black with a wet paint brush, they turn green or blue. When you wipe it the lines turn pink!

I'm lovin this portrait!
