New Fashion Illustration: A Modern Princess (Making Fashion Illustrations With Acrylic Paints)

Here is a fashion illustration of a red and gold gown. I painted this one without a reference, so it is a fashion design that I've came up with myself. I would love to own a dress like this one. I don't know where I would wear it, but I'd love to own it, because the design is just so glamorous. There is something about this kind of dresses that speaks to most women. Maybe it is all those princess stories we grow up with? I'm getting royal vibes from this dress. Maybe it has to do with colours as well. Crayon yellow, gold and red have both been trending lately. Interesting how this season both pastel and crayon shades are popular, right? Anyhow, I've always loved the combination of red and gold (or yellow). It is such a royal colour combination. I could say the same about blue and silver. Some colours just seem to go well together.

adding finishing touches

The medium is acrylic paints on paper. I've worked on this painting for a few days because there are many layers to it. Originally I had  painted the hair blue but I changed it to green so it wouldn't blend with the background. I had to be careful with the colouring of the dress so that I could convey the shape and the colour of the dress better. There were many layers to this dress but also many details, for example I needed to create a sparkling effect. In addition, I wanted the background to enhance the dress. So, I've put some thought and effort into this one. I'm pretty happy with the result, though. This fashion painting came out nicely. I really do enjoy making fashion art with acrylic paints.  I would say it makes fashion illustrations look more artistic. Since I studied this medium on the art classes I'm taking, I've figured out why not?

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
