Part of my “Icons” series this is a portrait of Marilyn Monroe who to this days is still considered the world’s most popular icon of sex appeal and beauty, and is remembered for her idiosyncratic sense of humor and sly wit.Monroe has been imitated over the years by a number of celebrities, including Madonna, Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani.

The painting is covered by a layer of epoxy resin. Resin is similar to varnish in that it gives a glossy, protective finish – only resin is MUCH thicker and can be applied all at once. When cured, the resin will look the same as 50 coats of varnish – glassy, glossy, shiny, beautiful.
Note that some reflections on the pictures is caused by the highly glossy surface.

A little study for the mural I am going to do @cheltenhampaintfestival ,this year there is a "Book" theme and artists can choose to paint something based on their favourite author, Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" has been the subject of some of my artworks in the past, I am going to produce a few studies on this theme in the next few weeks..The Festival dates are 5-8 September, check it out!
