Natasha Richardson


Such sad news with the tragic death at 45 of Natasha Richardson yesterday. A lovely, elegant woman with a rich lineage of movie/stage royalty. She hadn't made a lot of films, but I made a point of watching my favourite tonight in order to do this sketch in tribute to her. This drawing depicts Natasha as she appeared in 1994's "Widows' Peak", a sly little tale set in Ireland, in which she costarred alongside Mia Farrow and Joan Plowright.

Goodnight, sweet Natasha. You'll be fondly remembered....

Wow!! What a beautiful drawing!! Love your work Pete. I noticed you did not ink it up, just a clean pencil drawing, NICE!!

Sad news though. I have not seen many of her movies, but seen "Parent Trap" several times, because my daughters loved it. She was adorable in that.
Thanks for sharing.
