Pin up painting (cont…)

Continuing my Pin-up Painting from yesterday – the left arm still looks too bendy but i’m happier with it over all – bit daunted about painting a face (gulp) 

2010_02280007 The sun was a little bright for a good photo :(  hence the bright bit to right and the reflected flash on the painting. 

A couple of transition pictures…

Pin-up painting

I began working on a new painting imaginatively titled Pin-up.

So far I'm pleased with it but i really hate the left arm.  Hopefully do some more to it later.

Scary to see the whole Milton part of the University of Portsmouth is totally gone – i didnt spend a great deal of time here because i was situated in town – but i did live down the road for quite a while. campus
i used to live on the university campus at Locksway Road..
lockswaytomilton
A – Locksway road
B – Milton Campus – sadly i was situated in town

The annoying thing was they had a minibus to take people from Halls to Campus / town Campus – people used to climb in at the Halls and get of in Milton – a 5 min walk.  Most of the time i couldn't get on the bus so i had to walk / pay for the bus.  They now have a fleet of busses moving students to and fro. 
Later i lived in Prince Albert Road, Milton – but we had to move when the land lord wanted the house back – grrr!  still the house had mice and slugs – it was also very very very cold.

Tom Welling

I tired to paint Tom Welling (from Smallville) – I’m not very happy with the colouring I’ll probably go back and try again.

Vroom Vroom

liono

get your motor running
head from the safari...
looking for adventure
and gazelles that come our way
at longleat we couldn't make it happen
couldn't give deer our jaw embrace
Now, Fired off to feed on bull
eat till we explode or are full
Booooorn to be Wiiiiiilld

2010_02110001 

I carried on with the yellow under painting today, trying to build it up a bit – i also did the helmet (of Nabu) i’m going to have to do some more work on it later and get the shading right. 

2010_02110002

I filled the eyes silver – may change them to white or even black – not sure yet.

I messed the hand up – the thumb was at the wrong angle so i had to paint it out – hence the big splodge of white paint. I actually applied it with my finger. I’m not sure I will be able to do much more painting over the next week as its half term and I'll be busy being assaulted by my kids :)
