Urban Fashion Illustration: Pretty in Pink ( A Brunette in a Pink Dress)

To start with, here comes  my new fashion illustration of the day. A Brunette in a Pink Dress is a mixed media painting. For most part it's a watercolour painting but I added some finishing touches with the coloured pencils. The painting was inspired by Autumn, the beautiful season we are currently enjoying. If you look closely, you'll see that I've also painted puddles. A bit of the black watercolour  paint I is spilling from the illustrated cowboy boots, but that's how imagined it. 


Mixed Media Fashion Illustration 


As the title suggests, the painting depicts a girl wearing a pink dress. There is a bit of layering going on. What is she wearing over her pink shirt dress? Why, a warm vest. Autumn is all about layering. Our illustrated girl also choose to wear dark brown tights and black cowboy boots. She is also holding a bouquet of flowers. How to Wear a shirt dress in Autumn? This would be my illustrated answer. Pair it with leggings or tights and cowboy boots, and you've got yourself an unique and pretty outfit. I do like how this fashion illustration turned out. I was going for a slightly artistic feel to it, with a blurry urban background. I must say I'm quite happy with how it turned out.




How is Autumn treating you? Are you ready for Winter? Today it's so sunny that Winter seems far away, but I'm sure it'll arrive in a heartbeat. At the moment, I'm enjoying this picturesque  season (whenever  I'm not terribly ill that is) and one of the things I love about this season is the ability to pick wild pomegranate. Yes, you've read that right.  There are even some wild pomegranates growing near my house. In fact, a pomegranate is one of the symbols of Herzegovina.  One of the definite advantages of living in a Mediterranean climate is being able to buy (or pick) all kinds of delicious fruits. Scroll down to see a cute tiny pomegranate I picked today. 


Because I quite liked this painting, I made it available in my Zazzle shop in the form of various products. I like the idea of fashion illustrations printed on clothing items. If you recall, I ordered one such tote bag this Summer and was quite happy with it. I ended up gifting it to my aunt. It was certainly interesting to see my fashion illustrations being worn in this form. I already wrote about this and the designing/customizing process that many online shops offer, so I won't repeat myself too much. It is also available as an original painting in my shop.

I also added some of my new fashion paintings to my Redbubble shop (for example here). That would be all for today. As always, thank you for all your lovely comments. One more thing.  Bellow you can also see the sketching process (for those of you who are interesting in the making of  process of this fashion illustration). As I already mentioned, I sketched this fashion illustration with pencil and then I filled it with watercolours. Take care and have a great weekend!

  2. Dear Ivana, I hope you are as well as possible ... and it is wonderful you enjoy nevertheless fall. The woman in the illustration you how here today looks exactly like you, do you know this and was this your intention? In each case I love this look with pink as I'm always love pink. And I'm really impressed you can pick pomegranates near your house. I love pomegranates and saw the first time in my live a pomegranates tree with fresh fruits in Sardina.

    1. thank you Rena. I honestly didn't notice that it might look like me, but I haven't used a reference for this one so it's possible. I think artists often paint themselves unconsciously just because we are all familiar with our facial features.

  3. Hey Ivana,
    what a great illustration, again ;)
    I adore how dynamic this one is, it feels like you are telling a story with this fashion illustration. Where is this woman going? And again, I love her outfit ;) Can't get enough of pink looks.

    1. Thank you so much! Maybe she's coming back from or going on a date. Or perhaps she has picked up those flowers for herself?

  15. What a lovely illustration. I think you managed to successfully create the artistic feel you were going for and the outfit depicted is very fresh and feminine. How lucky for you to be able to enjoy wild pomegranates now. My autumn has been busy but good. I was a little sad to see October coming to an end since it is one of my favorite months.

  24. YAY! As always I adore to see your illustrations and in this case the process, you're just an artist Ivana :)

    I also like that you do not limit yourself to the simple tools and that you go beyond by adding textures, materials and other stuff that just improve your already good work. Love her expression and the way she's moving with the bucket of flowers as the main focus item!

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
