    Hi there , This is my first figure for a while . I wanted to try painting female flesh tones , which was very challenging but also a lot of fun . Also my first figure painted completely with Acrylics .These Andrea Pinups are really nice but quite fiddly to put together . Any comments welcome . maid 01.jpg Maid 02.jpg maid 03.jpg maid 04.jpg View attachment 157427

    Fantastic! Great skin tones and the blacks and whites look superb. Did you use the Andrea color sets?

    Thanks for the kind comments Tom .Yes , you caught me out ! I have used the Andrea sets , getting a bit lazy in my old age , but it is a good way to learn .I used some different colors like adding blue to the hair so I could get a contrast with the uniform , but the sets are a really good starting point . It is certainly a lot different than painting with Oils . I usually use a mixture of both Oil and Acrylics these days ,so this was a bit of a challenge .

    Cheers

    Awesome work Neil.
    I like absolutely every single aspect of what you have painted here, right down to the rug and feather duster.
    Very well presented.

    Great work Neil. I like the well worn rug especially (I must be getting old, 20 years ago I wouldn't even have noticed the rug).

    Thanks for sharing,
    Billy :)

    Hi Neil

    Really like your choice of colours & variation in tones on this little lady.
    Good on ya for giving acrylics ago, can see you are quickly picking up the technique to use these.

    I especially like her stockings, nice sheen.

    Great photos too mate!
    That new camera is already paying off :)

    Stay safe,
    Mike

    Not my choice of subject (though I do appreciate the quality if these Andrea figures) but I felt I really had to compliment your use of the acrylics - very subtle and well handled.
    Cheers

    You did a super job Neil, she looks very natural. Like you, I have found those paint sets most helpful. Well done (y)!

    Best wishes, Gary.
