The sketch challenge at Creative Club Simple Pleasures inspired me to create this work with thisbeautiful Pinterest photograph of a gown. As soon as I saw the sketch, I felt inspired to create with this particular photo that I have been holding on to for quite a while. Isn’t the bodice work gorgeous? How could I not want to create with this kind of beauty ? For those of you that have shared my journey on creating the Exquisite Gown Series, you know that I try to duplicate a feature of the gown with my arsenal of art products. Here I have tried to duplicate some of the beaded work on the bodice and have placed it on the little postage stamp looking feature on the sketch, and on a little flower next to the photo on the left. Some Art Alchemy gesso, mica powder, and metallic yellow magic acrylic paint helped me to create just a little snip-it of that beaded masterpiece on the bodice. The paper I have used is Canson's Mixed Media 9 x 12 paper.
Thank you for letting me share with you this new gown to my Exquisite Gown collection.
