Phil and I flew from LA to Washington D.C. this morning to celebrate the holidays with family. Now that we’ve landed, I can’t believe it’s actually warmer here than it’s been in LA. 70 Degrees in December on the east coast is pretty crazy and although I packed all of my winter gear, we’re thankful not to have to layer up this year! Fashion-wise, I’ve been painting a lot of holiday inspiration recently and this red gown is one of my favorites.
I love experimenting with watercolor illustrations of makeup–especially because they’re so much fun to frame and hang in my art studio space afterwards. I challenged myself to quickly sketch the above painting out in 5-10 minutes because I wanted to see what lipsticks would look like unpolished and without too much detail.
This watercolor was inspired by Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (which I can’t stop reading about and following on social media from LA!).
I can’t get enough of this red mini Celine bag–it’s been on my fashion wish list for a while now. I love its clean, classic lines and it’s bold, bright color.
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on painting street style fashion in motion. This is one of my favorite sketches that came out of the process so far. I added in a bunch of texture to the outfit and I like that the colors ended up boldly popping off the page.
