Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Above is my latest fashion illustration I wanted to share with you. The painting was inspired by spring fashion (which I can’t get enough of this year!)–namely light, flouncy materials in pastel hues. I used watercolors to get the translucent, etherial effect I was going for. Just before the painting had dried, I decided to try adorning the gown with Swarovski crystals like the ones I could see sewing into it if it were a real gown. I love how this three dimensional effect turned out and I look forward to experimenting with crystals on other paintings in the near future. Have a wonderful start to the week and carpe diem!
