A new one in the sans titre series depicting Gone with the Wind actress Vivian Leigh. I like her cool looking appearnce hiding a turmoil of complex emotions, wandering from depression, alcoholism to briljant actorship and back, ending in her death by tuberculosis. I tried to capture her vulnerability as well as her ability to strike a pose.
