My mom always wanted to be famous. She was a talented songwriter, composer, and inventer. She also studied fashion illustration in the 1940s at the Maryland Institute of Art. She always thought she was better at music than art but she was pretty good at art too! Here are some of her watercolors and drawings from her time at school! 🎨 #vintagefashion#vintageart#vintagedress#1940s#1940sfashion#fashionillustration
So I've been feeling more confident in my #sketching , so I figured I'd try my hand at an #illustration to test it. .....mmmmm my lines are still pretty wobbly- I don't have full control yet over making confident lines. Laying color inside the lines is still slightly difficult as well, but I predict I'll be able to get to commissions- or at least color pre-existing commissions by the end of the week or into next week. My hand gets better everyday! :) In other news, I'm waiting on my gouache paints to arrive, cause I feel like traditional painting might be a bit easier than the #cintiq , since the cintiq screen is kind of slippery and my hand doesn't have great control yet. I'm excited to get into traditional painting again!
So here's my test, a girl walking with some #poodles , wearing Michelline's new dress that's coming out soon that I REALLY WANT lol #art#artwork#doodle#vintage#retro#vintageart#vixenbymichelinepitt@vixen_by_micheline_pitt
