Mayday Challenge Painting #2 :: Bikini Girl

Today I started the second painting in the Mayday Challenge. Firstly I traced the image onto the canvas via a photocopy of the image and a sheet of carbon paper. I could have drawn the image directly onto the canvas, but I wanted it to be as realistic and correct as possible.

In order to maintain the integrity of the image I am masking it with watercolour masking fluid, which seems to work equally well with oils (so far). My aim with this is to have the figure as the focal point, so it is pretty important that it is as realistic as possible.
