Hey everybody, just discovered this forum whilst trying to find out what happened to Jamie Rodriguez - tragedy. Been spraying for about a year now after trying for first time 25 years ago and giving up! Went on a course with Marissa Oosterlee in May - best thing I've done!. I'm currently trying to get my work into the local art scene and maybe sell a bit - that would be nice. Here's a few of the latest pieces.

Hi, yes it was the Yarmouth course full colour portrait class and it was amazing. It made me realise what level can be achieved. This is the painting I did and I've never done photo realism before. There was one guy there who'd never touched an airbrush before and even he got a decent result. I'm from Leeds so it's a bit of a trek down there but I'd love to go back in November. Gonna try and get to KKBO, some of the guys on the course are there so would be nice to catch up

You don't have to be good at drawing, we had several black & white copies of this image that we just cut out masks from to get the basic shapes. There are so many little tricks and tips for fine detail but yes the skin tones were the best thing she taught. It's her system of using traditional techniques like creating an underpainting then layering washes of colour over the top that really work well. I've just done this Robert Plant portrait by using the grid system to enlarge a photo onto cheap drawing paper, I then cut out the eyes, nostrils, lips and the edge of the face and ghosted them in and then just freehand the shapes in using simple paper shields. Yes Pete is a great guy, just wish I lived a bit nearer.

thats pretty much how i do mine anyhow, basic eye location and nostrils and edge of face all cut out roughed in then detail on top, just struggle a bit more when it comes to enlarging. nicked a over head projector from work though so have now got those bases covered!! woop woop. robert plant pic is also awesome, you clearly have some excellent skills and will be an asset to us on the forum.
got a baby on the way in a month so there is no way the mrs will let me anywhere near yarmouth in november, hmmmm maybe have to catch up with her next year!
