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?

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

10 WAYS TO WEAR A RED BLAZER FOR SPRING AND SUMMER

As much as I love a classical white or black blazer, there is something to be said about rocking a coloured blazer. In summer, it is somehow easier to wear colour. Great thing about blazers is that you can wear them all year around. A nice crayon blazer can be  a great way to accentuate your summer tan. Blazers were my 'go to' look this spring, and I'll probably wear them a lot this summer as well. Today I'll show you ten ways to wear a crayon red blazer for late spring and early summer. Where I'm from, the summer has already arrived, and I don't have that much need for layering, but I still like to have a blazer at hand for whose windy summer nights. If it is still fresh where you live, a blazer can be the perfect clothing item to transition into summer with.
