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 WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…

STRIPED ITEMS IN MY CLOSET I OFTEN REACH FOR

A key to shopping one's closet perhaps lies is knowing one closet. Think about it this way. If you love a certain clothing item, it might be because you have already learned how to wear it. Today I want to talk a bit about striped items in my closet. These are some of the pieces that I often reach for in spring and summer, so I thought it would be good to do some outfit proposals and ideas with stripes. If we often wear something, it might be for two reasons: we really like it & we're tight with time. There is nothing wrong in relying on pieces you love when you're on the go. Similarly, there is nothing wrong with falling in love with a certain clothing item, cut, print or whatever. Stripes have a way of making any outfit feel more spring & summer appropriate, and that might be one reason why I like them.
