The blue dress

The blue dress – watercolor on paper

My love for wet in wet work truly shows in this piece. I started with a loose sketch of the figure and I was not quite sure of how I would proceed from there. I just loved the pose.

This sketch sat, propped on the board, against my studio wall for over 2 months. After viewing some demo by Jacques Williet and Viktoria Prischedko, inspiration struck.

I wanted to work with contrasting colors but also colors that would work well together and create a timeless romantic atmosphere.
