I've finally managed to find some time to start trying to learn how to paint.
Just baby steps at the minute (hence the monochrome), I'm going to concentrate on just learning how to push paint around before I start in on colour mixing etc.
Here are a couple of oil paint sketches from photo ref:

From a photo in a fashion mag; my very first (ever!) finished oil paint sketch

This one is from a photo of the Swedish lovely Christina Lindberg. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. probably about 3 hours work.

Don't worry though, i'll be back to drawing pervy stuff soon!

Woo hooo!!
So glad to see you start painting mate. The second one is great: you have already started some really strong treatmet of edges. Really looking forward to seeing where you go with real paint. We should try and do an exhibition in a years time!
