Audrey Hepburn in Oils

Hello Friends!

Yesterday, I finished this oil painting, my second one ever! This medium is so much more difficult than any other paint medium I have tried! Just cleaning the brushes alone is a process!

Anyway, I found a picture of Audrey Hepburn dancing and just had to try drawing and painting her! Also, I drew it from an 8×10 printout of the photo, but made her large enough to fill a 10×20″ canvas! I also made her shirt grey instead of black like it is in the photo. I wanted to be able to see her left arm which blends in with her pants in the photo, because she’s wearing all black. 

I have to say that I have become a bit captivated by her since I began reading the book “Audrey Hepburn: A Charmed Life” by Robyn Karney. She was an intriguing person and an inspiration to many. Sweet. graceful, and down-to-earth is how I would describe her. So if you want to know more about her, I would recommend this book. The reading is easy and enjoyable and definitely not bogged down with boring or useless information like a lot of biographies I have tried to read in the past.

Have a wonderful day! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
