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.

As promised here is the finished dress. I love it although I could use a lesson on painting 'drapes'!

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.

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.
