Marilyn Monroe Art – “No. 5″
Marilyn Monroe art in the form of graphite and charcoal on paper.“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.” Marilyn is famously quoted as saying.
Some of the quotes attributed to Marilyn are humorous and clever. A particular favourite of mine is “the nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least i can dream”. Some of her quotations, even the shortest are very revealing.
The image that this Marilyn Monroe drawing is based on is simply incredible. A classic with Marilyn Monroe, Chanel and black and white.
I wanted this artwork to retain that classic feel and used various grades of graphite pencil in addition to charcoal to do this and create the drawing. There is something very intimate in drawing as opposed to painting. I don’t know if it is to do with the scale of the tip of a pencil but as the likeness appeared in this Marilyn Monroe art there was definitely a sense of satisfaction that all of this came from a pencil tip of just a millimeter or so.
This artwork is made available for sale as a drawing on paper, unframed, however the drawing can be framed to suit should that be required.
