In The Pink by ShanghaiSarah In The Pink by ShanghaiSarah
Watercolour - using 1 colour, Winsor & Newton Mauve.

Originally, called Marilyn in Mauve because the reference was from a lovely photo of Monroe looking stunning in her hat! But, I felt my painting didn't resemble this vintage beauty - I get carried away at times with my brush!

It's incredibly hard to only use one color, but you did an amazing job! I never had sucess with only one color, so I am really amazed by your talent :heart:

My fave. The fact that you got carried away and kind of lost the resemblance to the iconic actress does not at all detract from the beauty of the painting.

Painting a person in one color and making them look absolutely recognizable... THAT is art. Wonderful job.

This is very eye-catchy and spontaneous. I love monochromatic paintings even though I never can get myself to do any xD
