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.
