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.

Anyhow, there are less than 400 inhabitants living in this town. The placement of this town is fantastic,it has a coast line on both sides of the island. Basically, the city is facing both the mainland and the the sea (since Croatia's coastline is island abundant, you can always expect the 'sea view' to include islands). Moreover, there is an abundance of sand, peddle or rocky beaches to choose from. The sea is crystal clear, so that's always nice. You can al…
