The Veiled Lady by IleanaHunter The Veiled Lady by IleanaHunter
The veiled lady is Elizabeth Taylor, of course. And the reference photo was absolutely breathtaking; all I could do was stare at it, mouth agape and not comprehending how it's even possible to be this beautiful. Then picked up the pencils, and you know the rest.

The said pencils are Staedtler Mars Lumograph pencils (ranging from 2B to 5B). On extra smooth Bristol board, 8 x 11".

Original available here, and on my Christmas sale: [link]

It's not easy as I save reference photos in folders, but, if it's a classic Hollywood actress, it's very likely to be from doctormacro.com.
