Friends, I am so so excited to announce that I will be working with Giorgio Armani beauty team this Saturday , June 3rd at Saks Fifth Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland.
This is a dream come true for me and I may have danced around just a little bit when I got the opportunity.
The details of the event are below in the invite to the Born Backstage event by Armani featuring celebrity face designer Tim Quinn . If you are in the area, do stop by at the event.
I will be sketching portraits of clients at the event and I hope to see you there 🙂 Appointments are encouraged if you would like to be sketched, since it does get pretty busy . If you can’t be there , follow along on Instagram Stories for more behind the scenes from the event.
Hope everyone is enjoying the nice warmer weather . Spring is tricky – with the temperatures swinging and the rain too. It’s raining today 🙄 . But , although I will always favor cool over heat, I do like the 65 -70 degree weather – anymore than that, and I start to complain !
I also find myself drawing more outfits that think spring. This time, I thought a video would be perfect showing the process.
I used Copic Markers and Sakura Micron pens for the sketch .
She’s available as a print on Etsy and also on phone cases on Casetify .
Hope you are having a great week so far. In our neck of the woods, we’ve had a weird weather. We went from cold to beautiful within a day. Yesterday started out gloomy and wet. Then there was a downpour for about half hour- and I’m talking about a deluge, trees threatening to fall over from the wind . I dropped off my son at school in all of this. The poor kid was soaking wet – as were the other kids in school. I came home drenched and cold. The umbrella and my rain jacket were pretty useless in all of this.
This was followed by a pretty gloomy morning . I guess, being wet and cold, prompted me to create something bright and cheerful . I went with watercolors and gel pens for this one. I remembered to take a few in progress shots of this illustration . It gives you an idea of how it all came together.
I used my Artist’s Loft watercolors for this illustration . It is available at Michaels – I love the brilliance of the colors . I recommend this set for those who’ve never used watercolors and would like to try it out.
I added the patterns and details on the sari and blouse with Sakura Micron Pens and gel pens. I used acrylic paint to bring out the shine and flare on the sari .
Watercolors for her hair and a touch of Micron Pens.
There she is – all done and sashaying away to some mysterious location . She’s available for purchase in different sizes on Etsy and on phone cases etc through Casetify.
