Newsprint Watercolor Portrait Marilyn Monroe

This is my latest Marilyn Monroe portrait.

I made a digital collage of extracts from newspaper articles about Marilyn using Corel Painter and Photoshop. I then printed the newsprint background on arches waercolor paper.

I then painted Marilyn using watercolor paints in a minimlist style.  I love the effect.
