Shirley MacLaine

March 04, 2009

Here's Shirley MacLaine--- I really like the background color I used in this one:




Does anyone know where I can find a good picture of Simone Simon? I really want to paint her, but it seems like the only pictures I can find she is either engulfed in shadows galore and you can't see her face, or the image is thumbnail size, like 80x80 and I can't see it well enough. I tried doctormacro, any suggestions?

Wow! I think Shirley is your best effort yet! Is this from The Apartment?

On the Simone Simon front, try these adorable images: http://www.doctormacro1.info/Movie%20Star%20Pages/Simon,%20Simone-Annex.htm

This is my favorite film photography site. One of these images is on my desktop at all times. :)

Paul- Thanks! I'm looking forward to finding a good picture of her to paint! I may have to do a screenshot from one of her movies..

casey- Thanks so much!! It's from the same time period as The Apartment, but it's taken from a portrait of her, not from the movie. Thanks for the Simone Simon links! I like the one where she's looking down, but it may be hard to do a pop-art painting of it with all the shadows. She had such a cute face, I can't believe how few pictures there are of her.

Sweet pirate betty- Thanks so much :) I think I've been working too hard... I need a little break!

Cullen- Thanks! I really like that one. It's definitely big enough... hmm....

elena-lu - Thanks! You give the nicest compliments of anyone ever! lol. I can feel my head expanding right now.

Millie- Thanks :)
