Here's another little ballerina-inspired piece, finished in silver glitter. You can watch the time-lapse video on my blog:

I quite like this dress and pose, so I'm trying it out in a few different color / glitter combinations.

I'm going to try and do some more sketches and watercolors this week, but here are my first two. I've got progress photos on Instagram (@BrownPaperBunny) and you can watch the time-lapse videos of me painting them on: www.viddy.com/brownpaperbunny

Sorry these are so late, but here are two quick sketches. I'm going to do a series of less-structured, stylistic ones too and I'll post them soon.

I didn't have a reference photo for the skirt on the second one and I don't feel the movement is quite right. Any suggestions?

After studying ballet for almost 19 years I'm a little bit in love with floaty, tulle-laden gowns. If it's got a 50s feel, a tea-length skirt, is pink, pretty, and puffy...I'll probably love it.

I've set up an inspiration board on Pinterest with some more of my favorite fashion pieces: http://pinterest.com/BrownPaperBunny/paper-fashion-class-inspiration/
