If you’re interested in commissioning a classic celebrity drawing, please just pop over to my commission a portrait page, fill out the form and I’ll be more than happy to help you.
Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor in Waterloo Bridge (1940)
I was asked to draw this striking portrait of Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh for a lovely lady called Danielle, who wanted to give it as a birthday gift to her sister (Waterloo Bridge being her sister’s favourite film). The commission itself was for a 12in x 16in pencil portrait and I am very pleased to say that both Danielle and her sister were very pleased with it (see my customer reviews page).
