'her outfit was fashionably late' by myra anderson . . .

Here I decided to try color.  I think that I will try to do some 'fashion sketches'.  When it comes to me and fashion I think about that quote in 'gone from the wind' - "I don't know nothing about burping no babies!" But I think that I will give fashion illustrations a try.

'blues shoes' by myra anderson . . .

Okay the last of the 'blues'.  Tomorrow I will post some color! I do love this particular painting - especially the shoes because they have glitter on them.

'myra . . . blue . . . walking' by myra anderson . . .

Okay so I could not come up with a better title for this post.  Oh how I love the ball gown from the previous post!  Here is another page from the same book.  This time however I filled in the skirt with the computer so that I could get a sneak preview of how the painting might look.

'ball gown blue and sharman owings too' by myra anderson . . .


Dress-er-cize!  This is a side step AND a forward step.  This is the same gown that I previously painted in red and green and posted below.  I was dying to paint this gown again! Once again I used the book page and incorporated the graphic that was at the bottom of the page.  What fun! 

The artist Sharman Owings has painted many a garment.  In many of her paintings the garments are not only beautiful but she uses them to tell a unique story. 
'all that is blue'

'inside out'

'out of balance'

#9 'the little black dress #1' myra and modigliani . . .

dress removed
When I have more time I just might research the origin of 'the little black dress'.  Yesterday I attempted to paint a black dress as 'a work of art'.  It was so terrible that (like a 2 year old) I threw a mental tantrum and almost abandoned the whole 'dress project'.  When I sat down (like an adult) to see how I could salvage this dress I drew ONE line and BOING!  It all came together!  Did Modigliani (see painting below) have these problems?  Maybe I will post this dress tomorrow . . .

#8 'the bees knees' dress art, myra and matisse . . .

I'm still working on 'the dress' sketch.  Another artist of 'the dress' is Matisse.  The painting below is entitled 'two young women the yellow dress and the scottish dress'.
