Good morning friends~
I think some of you may know how much I love vintage pin ups. I always find myself drawn to their unmistakeable style and softness of their bodies. Nothing against the beautiful woman of today who pose for sexy pictures by any means ~ it's just my humble opinion. I think what I love most about these vintage beauties is they've mastered the art of being alluring. Showing a little goes a long way in my book. Don't you think?
So it's been a long time since I have painted or drawn anything and yesterday it hit me that I needed to give the garden a rest and start sketching again. Why put it off? Well I actually know the answer to that question....TIME! Time is always a factor in everything especially these days. Always too busy for this or that. Pooh on being too busy was my conclusion. Yesterday I set aside 4 hours to sketch and paint and let my creative juice flow. I still have a few more details to tend to but for the most part my Pink Haired Lovely is complete. She is small (only 5 X 7) which is a perfect size for me to "almost" get done in 4 hrs. I would love to buy a Frenchy looking scrolly oval frame for her.
A little pink maribou for the photo added just the right about of softness. I made a boo boo on one of her....well lack of a better word "boo boos". You can see it a bit smudged up there on the right. That's one thing I still need to get right. In this shot her hair wasn't complete either like up in the top photo and her eyes are still in progress too.
I always like to take a WIP shot of what I'm painting or drawing because when I create people I layer their eye colors over and over again until I find the perfect shade. Same with hair. I think once I start on hair I am compelled to morph it over and over again. Enjoy!
PS I'm leaving you with this song by Florrie Arnold who I think is the cutest girl singer out there right now : )
AND she can play the heck out the drums!
