‘Marilyn’

Marilyn Monroe, Queen of Hearts

A4 mixed media original painting on paper, framed in black A3 float frame

Held by The Art Centre of Sydney, Darlinghurst

 

Inspiration

The Queen of the sliver screen had to make an appearance in this collection! She is an absolute icon of overcoming adversity and creating a life to be proud of, and taking the reins when life deals you a rough hand. She went from being in an orphanage to brushing shoulders with presidents through embracing her femininity and playing the blonde bombshell, while making sure she didn’t get stuck in the comedy movies and demanded that she be taken more seriously. If Marilyn can turn her life around then so can we!

Process

To create these original paintings, I first prep the paper with a collage of various vintage papers such as musical scores, comic books, dictionaries, encyclopaedias and biographies. The second layer is a clear gesso base to draw on top of then a charcoal sketch mapping out the lights and darks of the portrait, first with vine charcoal and secondly with compressed charcoal and charcoal pencils. This is then sealed with spray fixative, and time for the final details using Winsor & Newton oil paints to make the portrait pop and add contrast between the person and the background. Once I’m fully happy with the portrait I then fill the remaining area with either black or white acrylic paint and spray paint on the playing card details! I’m so happy with how they look I hope you love them as much as I do xx

The Series

 

The ‘Royal Flush’ series is an offspring of my favourite paintings from the ‘Get Messy Challenge’, and the series is only just beginning! I have so many ideas of how to expand on this collection that I can’t wait to share with you.
