Pinnup of Aisling Grace Flaherty

Hi everyone,
I have finished my first pinnup painting. I was very kindly provided reference photography from the talented Miss Rain. You can see her brilliant work here. She also does the photogpahy at the Dr Sketchy Nottingham events which is what got me into the whole pinnup idea to begin with!
The lovely model was Aisling Grace Flaherty.

It is oil on primed MDF and is about 2x1ft in size.
I plan on doing a series of these and really loved doing this one. There are a few things that I do like about it but it is a decent begining. I am already well under way with my next one.

Alla Prima portraits

Hi all.
I have started attending the West Hallam Portrait Group. It has been great fun. Each session I have started a new painting and attempted to finish it in one sitting. If i run out of time during the session I spend an hour at home finishing off. They are about 3 hours painting each. The drawing has suffered a bit because of the very short window of painting time. I am also aware of a few hard edges dotted around that i really should have softened off but too late now! I will try and shift my emphasis to better (slower!) drawing at the next session.
I feel like I am improving with each one and they are an absolute blast to paint. I am also finding that they are having a positive filter down effect on my other work.
There are also a few 20-30 minute life drawings here too.

Cheers Jake
