Sixties Chicks at the Tate
« on: November 12, 2005, 10:38:48 »


David (Guarrenzino) and I added a few retro-inspired conversions recently at JustForKl!cks.

One of these is the figure I'm currently using as my avatar. Tim_w made some nice comments about it in my "Welcome" topic, so I thought he and the other PF members might like to see what the rest of "Peggy" looks like, if they haven't already visited the site. :) Though I do have to say she pales a little by comparison to "Jackie" (one of David's girls) who is also shown on this page. 8-)



Pease click the pic above and it will take you to J4K where you can see more pics which can be opened at larger sizes. :)

I second what Tim has allready said. Your painting skills are the most fantastic, so detailed. How do you do it?  :)

Attention to detail is right! Even the tiny paintings are authentic Tate replications (does "authentic replications" make any sense?) I love all 3 of your 60s ladies! Is Jackie the blonde? I still like that checkerboard dress the best! :D

Thanks! :love:

I'm not sure what method David uses, whether he masks areas off or just relies on neat brush lines. Usually I don't bother with masking because it slows me down, but I did try it when I was working on that dress. Serenity has started a topic in the "How-To" board about getting [sharp edges when painting], and I have posted my methods there. Hopefully those with better techniques than me will share their tips too. :)

Is Jackie the blonde?
Yes, that's her! :yup: David couldn't think of a name for her, so I called her Jackie due to the "Union Jack" design on her dress. ;D (Put those noodles away, Meg! :P)

If you move your mouse over the pics, a description of each one (including the girls' names) will come up in small boxes. I did it this way because I didn't want to clutter the page with additional captions under the photos. :)

With that black and white theme in the clothes you've got the Mary Quant look to a tee.
