FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: MY INSPIRATIONS
Hello readers! How are you? I'm alright, pretty much working on new art all the time. Friday is here and I have a few fashion illustrations to share with you. Three of them are fashion sketches (medium coloured pencils) and one is an aquarelle sketch. I'm also going to show you an outfit I wore for a visit to Buna river and Bunica recreational area near Mostar (last visited HERE). We visited Buna maybe a week or so ago, but I haven't posted this outfit (well, not the complete outfit anyway). This post will be short and sweet, my outfit and a few illustrations and that is that. Scroll down to see and read more.
THE FASHION SKETCH- RUNAWAY LOOK (COLOURED PENCILS ON A5 PAPER)
THE STORY OF MY OUTFIT- All of the items in this post are old and the scarf is borrowed from my husband. THE UZOR DRESS- I'm wearing a from Uzor dress (i.e. a Croatian fashion house that closed down), it's one of a kind dress too, made only in one size. When Uzor was closing, I remember the sales ladies brought this dress to me and said it was only ever made in ones site that I must have it- and fortunately I still fit in it. If you like this dress, HERE is a post with 7 ways to wear it. THE MUSTARD SWEATER- last worn here. I wore this sweater over the dress. I also wore a statement necklace that I completed with some leather touches. I used to make jewellery. You actually already saw a part of this outfit (without the puffer jacket and shoes) when I showed you illustration I made of Marisa. I remember that some of you noticed the tights I was wearing so I'll get to that in a second. TWO PAIRS OF TIGHTS- I actually layered two pair of tights in this outfit, I wore the burgundy pair underneath the black fishnet leopard tights. I really liked this little fashion experiment and I was warm too so it was a win, win! THE BIKER BOOTS- worn multiple times in this post here.
FROM MY SKETCHBOOK- TWO FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS- INSPIRED BY BLUE Classical blue was the Pantone colour of 2020. It makes sense as we often felt 'blue' in 2020. However, blue is also a gorgeous colour. In my sketches I paired it with red and pink.
CHRISTMAS INSPIRED FASHION SKETCH- This is a simple Christmas fashion sketch in festive colours: red, black and green but toned down with blue jeans. I might do a more ambitious Christmas illustration if I find the time. I have recently started some landscape paintings and that takes a lot of time to get right, so I don't know, we'll see.
WATERCOLOUR PENCILS PORTRAIT OF TWO SISTERS- Strictly speaking, this is not a fashion illustration but I'm including it because I love it. Besides, my ladies are very stylish in this one. Two sisters, but with two completely different fashion styles. I included both the coloured pencil sketch and the watercolour version (that was made by adding water obviously).
