This is Vivien Leigh as she appeared in the movie Fire Over England from the late 1930's. The reference is from the book “The Art of Gone with the Wind: The Making of a Legend” that I received on my 18th birthday way back in 1990. I used this reference once back when I first got the book, but put her in an outfit from Gone with the Wind. After several hours of drawing this, I now see why I didn't try to draw this outfit before. I actually started the drawing in November!
Vivien Leigh and Fire Over England do not belong to me.
