Pin-Up Study No. 5


1st off, the pin-ups have a new home...the playboy mansion of journals, if you will...The Moleskine! It's my first Moleskine sketchbook. It's a bit tough to get used to the waxy coating on the paper, however I think once I get over that, this will be one of my very favorite sketchbooks!
So, this little cutie(much cuter by the original artist, mind you!) is a study of one of Rolf Armstong's gals featured in Taschen's The Great American Pin-Up. It's smaller than last journal I was using, so painting that tiny will take some getting used to, just like the new paper, but I think the extra effort will be worth it in the end. It forces me to slow down and really look at what I'm trying to do. I like small detail work, anyway.(most of the time)

Try adding the smallest amount of dish soap to you water as it aids in breaking down that Molie waxiness.
