Hello folks, recently I updated my Etsy shop with a few more prints available. One is a gicleé print of a 2009 Christian Dior Couture dress. Below you can see my process of the rough pencil sketch & then my ink line work before I added the finishing touches with oil paint. I’ve also included the very ‘fierce’ runway photo I was inspired by.
Really enjoyed ‘guessing’ the pattern of the fabric used. I think you get the gist. This was also my first foray for a while into doing something a bit looser. It’s hard to let go and me a bit more fluid with paint and line work after training yourself to do cleaner illustration work for years. Hopefully I can find time to work on some more fashion illustrations soon. Any requests?
Some quick info about the print: it is a giclée archival quality print (will last 70-200yrs) from an original ink & oil painting. It is printed by an expert printer on think watercolour paper with high pigment inks & with my signature. Sent unframed, but has a white border perfect for framing. The approximate image size is 7″ x 9.5″ printed on a sheet of 8″ x 10″ paper and it’s $32 usd (tax & delivery not incld.).
