Watercolor Wednesday pt. 1

23 Jan

Okay, so I don’t do Watercolor Wednesday every week (partly because I lose track of what day it is nearly every day), but a few weeks back I did an ENTIRE DAY of Watercolor Wednesday and I absolutely loved it!  I need to spend every Wednesday just playing with watercolors.

One of the projects I worked on that day was finishing up a set of watercolor fashion illustrations for my monoprismatic collection.  I wanted to have these drawings done before the collection went onto the runway, but when the deadlines starting flying at me, I decided to finish the clothing first.  No regrets.

My painting studio is too chilly for me in winter, so I let my painting projects  take over my sewing studio for the day.

Each figure was drawn to resemble the model that wore that particular outfit on the runway.  I don’t always do that, but I think having a separate hue for each model created a strong model-color-outfit connection in my brain.  I’m really color-oriented up there.

Fros are hard for me to draw and paint, but this guy turned out adorable.

It feels good to have all the illustrations finally completed.  Even better, I’m more than ecstatic about how they turned out.  Now I just have to figure out how to get some prints made asap, since so many people have been fighting over these even before I had them all drawn!  (If your an artist with a suggestion on how/where to get prints made, help a brother out.  Honestly, I’m stuck in “passive research” mode and I’d prefer to be in “waiting for the beautiful prints to arrive on my doorstep” mode.)

The finished monoprismatic fashion illustration set!

I’m for real about the prints. I will figure it out soonish, so keep an eye out for prints of these cute fashion drawings to pop up into my shop at www.audiohelkuik.etsy.com.  I’m excited to share the rainbowy glee!

      Thanks Michelle. It’s not true, though. I make a total mess out of clay. Ceramics = NOT MY THING.
