Jean Harlow by Stanbos Jean Harlow by Stanbos
Portrait of Jean Harlow, bristol paper, 44,5 x 34,8 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 34h.

The Platinum Blonde. I don't really know her, just her name, her face and her hair but I never watched a movie with her. I have to x) The photo I used as model is perfect, I just accentuated contrasts, and, of course I prefer like that ! I'm glad to come back after 9 months of orders for friends with this splendid blonde actress. It's been a long time since I've worked on a woman portrait and what is better than drawing blonde women ? ;)

'Hope you'll like it but anyway, I love it !
