It’s the beginning of the week and a stormy and very, very wet Monday. This morning was kick started with a super early morning workout and breakfast topped off with a strong espresso–needless to say, I had more than a little extra energy to burn today.
After working on some new ‘Modern Filipiniana’ designs for a couple of clients, I was left to while away an entire rainy afternoon and I thought, there’s water everywhere, why not add some to my fashion sketches. I had recently been inspired by all the amazing watercolor artwork of my good friend, Cynthia, so I dug up my watercolor sable brushes (from college!) and tried my hand at my first watercolor & pencil fashion sketch.
First a quick pencil outline…
Here’s a short clip painting in the details–it’s funny, I hold the brush like a pencil!
The sketch is based on my piña silk barong tunic with lace bib design (& model Daniela Kocianova)
It was so much fun, I think I’ll try to make time to do it more often
