'second opinion' myra and edward martinez . . .

Ahhhhh!  The dress as art.  Here are two sketches that I did as I pondered that thought.  Of course - many illustrators and fashion designers have drawn or painted beautiful dresses .  And many artists have incorporated beautiful dresses into their figurative work.  The painting below by Edward Martinez is entitled 'Second Opinion'.  I love the way he was able to incorporate the design element into the skirt.  Something that as of yet I am not able to do.

'the dress' myra and herschel otto . . .


Here is step 1 and 2 of the dress I am working on right now.
 
The painting below is by Herschel Otto (1871-1937).   I thought the title of the painting was 'three dresses' but I think the title is 'three women'.  In his work Otto paints beautiful dresses. 
Where am I going with my dress?  I do not know.

#5 'the little red dress' by myra anderson . . .


Hello and thank you for visiting!   Using watercolor I wanted to see if I could paint a little red dress.  Next:  I'm working on a sketchy sketch of a woman wearing a dressy dress.
