This is the first year Phil and I get to celebrate Valentine’s Day together as husband and wife instead of as fiances so it’s an especially special one. He’s also been traveling a lot on business recently so we’re excited to finally have some time to celebrate and to relax. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I’m excited to share some new hand-painted Valentine’s Day cards now available for a limited time on my online shop.
Happy Friday! It’s been another long week and I am so thankful that the weekend is around the corner. Finishing up the week by sharing another recent fashion illustration from my sketchbook. This was a quick sketch that was inspired by textured garments and oversized pieces. I loved filling in lace details in both the bottom and top of this look and I like how the colors really popped on camera.
I can’t get enough of my new Arches watercolor paper I scooped up a few weeks ago at a craft store here in LA (aka my mecca).
I loved so many gowns at the Emmys this year, I couldn’t help but paint some of my favorites. This is my take on Sarah Hyland of Modern Family’s beautiful frock. I love the volume in her Christian Siriano skirt and how the white crop-top balances the bright color so elegantly. I would wear this outfit in a heartbeat.
