Vivien Leigh 03/21/2013 by khinson Vivien Leigh 03/21/2013 by khinson
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.

Time and materials:
29.75 hours
9 x 12 smooth Bristol board
Kimberly pencils 2H to 6B
2B, HB and 4B mechanical pencils
kneaded eraser
blending stumps
Kleenex
