Fun with Watercolor Fashion Mashup

Fun with Watercolor Fashion Mashup - student project

I chose three magazine photographs, and attempted to sketch and paint them. And then I realized that while my brain wants to skinny-up and stylize these ladies, my hand wants to draw them with realistic proportions and curves. Below is the mashup between those two desires. First up: Jessica Chastain's Oscar dress, with prettier fabric...

Then a really, really stretched out lounging lady...

And finally, a fairly dowdy, shapeless lady (with nice legs!)...

Behold, and know that I've had a lot of fun doing these, and I intend to practice!Fun with Watercolor Fashion Mashup - image 1 - student projectFun with Watercolor Fashion Mashup - image 2 - student projectFun with Watercolor Fashion Mashup - image 3 - student project
