Dress 15 & 16

Dress 15 & 16


A bridesmaid dress my daughter wore for her cousins wedding.


And here it is with black paint outlines.

It’s the 25th…and I don’t think I’m going to get to my 28th dress. Maybe I’ll do some quick gesture paintings. Hmmm…maybe.

I’m actually ready to paint another subject. I think I’m ready to do some watercolor still life paintings.

This is another great 80’s prom dress that was mine. It has a peplum and not only a peplum, it’s a pouf peplum. I even had a bolero jacket to go with it. This dress saw me through 3 proms!


Then I thought I would try outlining the painting with black paint. Just to see how it looks. I kind of like both effects.

Lurking in the back of my closet I found this dress…never worn, not sure if it ever will be. I like the style, but I’m not sure if the color would do anything for me.

I did enjoy mixing the mauve color. I used my Intense Pink with some Chromium Green. It’s fun to mix colors!

I just realized that I have done nothing so far concerning the Wardrobe Architect project.

How did I get so far behind on everything?!

Yay! Dress 10! Which isn’t really a dress, but a swimsuit cover up! I really like how this turned out. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Which is good since I’m about 10 dresses behind!

More dresses on the way!
