About this session

Picasso said "without Cezanne there would have been no 20th century!" Paint this complex and intriguing still life by Cezanne, whose use of mixed perspective opened the door for cubism.

Marilyn Monroe, by Peter Inglis, 2019.
We start with a few sketches.

Having analysed the face and gained some confidence and moving your hand around it, we loosely paint the features with a size 6 round bristle brush.

Switching to a size 9 soft nylon liner brush we add dark lines. This very versatile brush enables us to go from a thin line to a broad stroke in one movement!

At this stage we can really start to define it as _her_ face.

Now we switch to the soft nylon flat brush and start adding colour.

Maintaining a "painterly style", we are careful not to over blend.

We make some artistic decisions about the colour of her sweater and voila! A very pleasing Marilyn portrait.
