This is from a series of intimate sketches of eyes - my favourite part of the face to work on - and here in close-up is Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor.
Liz had famously distinctive eyes which were set off by double eyelashes (thanks to a genetic disorder). Here the style icon is shown from her time filming the 1963 epic 'Cleopatra' - a movie beset with drama off-screen and on, and where she met her 4th (and 5th) husband Richard Burton.
I created this mixed-media artwork with acrylic and crayon and it comes with a hand-cut black mount.
