More Little Canvases

It's great to return to this concept! I'm finding I have changed my approach here and there in the two years or so since I made only problem is getting hands on time as I have been traveling here and there ... next week promises to give me many hours and I will be starting on the woman with the kaleidoscopic coat!

A little something...

When I was at Opus I spied some tiny 3x3 canvases and right beside them were these little easels. Not a hugely original concept but a fun polymer project! These ones were delivered to Side Street Studio for sale.

Fashion Resources

I have often used Vogue as a source of inspiration but now I have a new source- Etsy! A few days ago I saw a post in Facebook sharing an Etsy photo of this amazing jacket by Katwise

that turned on that little lightbulb above my head and made me grab my sketchbook! Her Etsy Site is glorious and the colours are outrageously fantastigamocorically incredible! I am a dreadful seamstress so the patterns won't help me but I would be over the moon to own one of those sweaters. How perfect as a craft show outfit!

I love the gesture of the model in the photo and the flow of the garment. I will add my own colour and pattern spin on the piece. Here's my preliminary sketch.... a modest start and certainlly not reflecting the feast of colour I have in mind- I have to say I am very excited!

I purchased a 16x20 board for the piece and work will commence tomorrow!
