Here's my finished watercolor rendition of page 12 in the Canberra Centre's new fashion magazine Culture. I'm completely in love with both the shoes (by Diavolina) and the 'Songbird' dress (by Review).
I keep promising to stop taking photos with my phone, but all of my recent paintings have been on A3 paper, and my scanner is too small, so you'll have to forgive the poor quality images.
Last week I received the first edition of Culture Magazine in the mail. It is a magazine put together by the Canberra Centre, on behalf of the retailers.
In the past I've been disappointed by mall magazines, but this one was really quite lovely. I think what really sold me was that they actually shot their main spread 'The art of fashion' in Canberra, and at two of my favorite places...The National Gallery of Australia, and the National Portrait Gallery.
The photos are really lovely, I just wish I knew who the photographer was because there doesn't seem to be a credit anywhere that I can find.
I did a quick painting of their cover outfit, although I only had poor quality watercolors and photocopy paper on hand, so here is the result.
Once I got home I did another take, this time on better quality paper using my regular watercolors. What do you think?
The magazine is going to provide me with inspiration for several weeks I suspect, as it is crammed full of beautiful fashion and accessories. And I'm already looking forward to the next edition!
Over the weekend I finished off my painting of this Kate Spade Westward Ingénue clutch. I honestly can't think of anything better than sequins and leather. And if I had a spare $545.00 it would be mine!
I've refrained from actually using glitter on this one. Are you proud of me? ;)
If, like me, you can't afford to buy the real clutch head on over to the new Illustrateur Etsy Store and pick up a little print!
