An initial sketch for an upcoming painting. Might do some more sketches to push the cute factor up a little more...

The pose is based on a Gil Elvgren painting but I worked from my own photo reference.

Pin Ups for the People!

Well, for anyone that has visited this page before, I've changed the look of this blog a bit and spent some
time trying to get it looking a little nicer- I think the black was bringing me down a little! Hopefully it looks a little cleaner, more inviting and not so dingy now.

In addition to the updated look of the blog I've got a new painting- a quick little pin-up and some even quicker sketches for my new friends at the Pole Dance Academy in Bondi Junction. Check them out at

I'll be working with the girls at Pole Dance Academy doing quick live portraits of girls for their hen's nights and parties- I was at the studio today and it was great!

The painting was done in about 2.5 hrs and the sketches are 5 minutes each, using photo reference. Dunno why the blog wants to cascade the images but I can't fix it!

As promised, I did some extra work on the BB's painting- it's interesting comparing it against the photo I posted at the start of the week, you can see some of the changes I made.
