Working Girls!

Late Saturday afternoon I took a drive down the seedy end of Carlisle St in St.Kilda to take a quick photo of one of it's street corners. This street corner will feature in my painting, and will house a couple of working girls (who usually frequent this area). This piece will highlight the seedy side of St.Kilda and city life in general. I've only done the base really, though hope to put the detail in this week. Here are some pics of my progress so far - sorry about the quality. These were taken with my mobile phone camera:)

For the 'Working Girl' on the right, I'm using a sketch I did recently at a life drawing class for inspiration. Here is the sketch:
