  Drew this because of the Japanese print on the cloth (you can fit Marilyn in any subject!). The photograph was taken by Cecil Beaton, and its one of my most favourite photographs. It was taken in a really soft focus, so I used only tortillion to blend to make it nice and fuzzy. I'm particularly pleased with the hands and transparency of the cloth on her left. Does the Japanese woman look like a drawing of a painting? If that makes sense.

- 4B Derwent Sketching pencil
- 8B Mars Lumograph pencil
- Crimson Blake tortillion, sizes 1-6
- Kneadable eraser
