This is a very unique and fantastic drawing of movie icon Audrey Hepburn. The back ground has been spray painted in a flat light blue whilst the detailing of the face has been constructed in black ballpoint pen. The tone within the face, jacket and hat has had watercolor detailing to leave an extremely realistic and professional look. Very nice picture as I’m sure you will agree.
