But I didn't want the painting to be just about her as an actress and the characters she portrayed in classic movies - but about who she was as a person. Few people know how the other side of Audrey, her humanitarian side and also her message to people regarding beauty and loving oneself.
I found a photo of Audrey I knew that I could work with and printed out some of my favourites quotes. I knew that there was one I wanted to emphasize in my painting because I think it's a brilliant way of defining what makes a person beautiful.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Finally, I also added some colour using a metallic red acrylic paint and knew my work was done. The original artwork is for sale and it is also available as a print which can be bought at the Deviant Art website.
