Sketch book entries….Pin up style artwork

have been doing some research of the great pin up style painters of yesterday year.  If you enjoy the pin up style you may check out some artists like Mel Ramos, Olivia, and Jose Vargas. The pin up style came about in WWII as the ladies were painted on the side of planes. In modern times the owner of British Airways has his mother appearing pin up style on his Virgin America planes. I enjoy looking at different ways to paint and depict the human body. I will be doing some paintings later on but for now I am working on getting the drawing as I would like it so I don’t have to make changes on the painting. I haven’t decided if the model should wear a one or two piece swimsuit, just the roughs are done but I have gotten the pose down to my satisfaction.
