I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent mine enjoying the beautiful summer weather outdoors–biking on venice beach with my fiance and testing out new running routes around our new neighborhood.  I also found some time to relax and paint.  I actually set out to paint a dream wedding gown but I came up with this purple gown instead.  As I painted, I couldn’t help but layer on a bunch of color.  I also ended up adding Swarovski crystals to the bottom of the gown to add even more pops of color. Check out Shoprelishbyarielle.com for more of my original illustrations.
