2. RESEARCH AND PLANNING
I don't ever look at old pinups but hundreds of them live in my head, the cultural impact is that strong and I bet you can conjure up an image of one without even trying. So instead of that I will be exploring modern images of women, usually in advertising or in the "social media" rage to find interesting poses and expressions of modern women. Our internalized image of what an ideal woman is in 2021. My favorites are possibly the Kardashian sisters, even though I have never painted one of them they capture something with their sexualized personas made for social media consumption. I can look at hundreds of pictures and once I find a pose that speaks to me I will make a little sketch to remember it and possibly scribble down ideas for colors and potential coloring. This is my currrent "sketch" for the project.
