Watercolor Drawing - Night on the Town in a Gown

Watercolor: I spent the afternoon working on just one of my sketches. Still a few to go but this has been fun.

Sketches: I spent the evening sketching and it was the first time in years that I really focused on on a full sketch as opposed to the doodling that I often do. I often rely on digital sketching so this was a challenge but a welcome one. I think I spent about 3 hours and the work definitely evolved through the evening. I've posted the three that I'm planning on finishing with watercolor. I decided to stay away from the white gown for now and the I just wasn't feeling the bottom right one.

Mood Board: Barbie and her elegant gowns are the inspiration for this mood board. The classic shapes, ruffles, embellishments and lace will provide an opportunity to experiment with fashion sketching techniques.
