A Portrait of Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore, born in 1975 into the famous Barrymore acting dynasty, has been on screen since she was a small child. She made her screen debut in the 1980 film Altered States, but it is generally her role in E.T. that we all remember. Being a child star was not easy on Drew; she got pulled in to a scene that included drug and alcohol abuse, but she pulled herself right back out, and she has been a champ ever since!
Her looks are lovely, of course, but her sweet and spunky personality and gentle but strong soul show through, as well. Not only is she a wonderful and appealing actress, she is a person who I think would really be a lot of fun to just hang out with. I tried to capture her beautiful spirit in this portrait I drew a few years ago. For those of you who like the technical info, it is graphite on Strathmore 400 Series drawing paper.
