Jean Harlow... FINIS!

April 22, 2009




YAY!!! She's finished!

I ended up using a different face entirely from the one in the original portrait, but I actually think this works better, and is more Harlow-ish than the other one. It's 8" x 16" and looks great with the other pop art paintings, because it's exactly double the length of the 8" x 8" ones -- see my picture in the previous post to know what I mean :)


I'm so glad now that the little one didn't turn out right, because she looks so much better on a big canvas!

Oh, this is some of your best work. It did turn out well--you captured Harlow perfectly. Owning a print of your Steve McQueen and having seen your Jane Wyman, maybe you should do more Missourians! (-:

Wow! That is really, really good. If I had an incredible amount of money I'd buy it. Really captured her.
