'flirty red dress in a blue room' by myra anderson painter of the fashion sketch . . .

As you know, in order to improve my drawing and painting skills I have been 'painting project runway' and 'sketching project runway'.  But this week  - the challenge was to paint 'a little flirty red dress'.   I think this dress looks a little flirty.  I love the bodice!

You know, one fashionista who could have been on the judging panel was . . .



None other than Matisse.  He sometimes painted women with a couture look and a flirty style!
So, the next challenge is to paint a dress using the color palette of this beautiful Matisse painting . . .

My little dress using this yellow, orange, blue and light tangerine/pink palette is so cute that I can't wait to finish it!
