I’ve always wanted to improve my depiction of fabric in my fine art and so I’ve decided to embark on a new body of personal work focused on fashion. With such a wealth of fashion imagery to pull from its been hard to know where to begin. I have a very extensive collection of fashion magazines, quite literally piled high around my studio space, so I’ve simply begun with images I love. I painted with oil paint on canvas board primmed with gesso.
All the images below are ‘works in progress’ with some of the most challenging fabrics, lace, chiffon, and sequins. Think I may be some time to get these finished!
