Oil, wax medium, paper dress pattern on canvas
I was cleaning out my sewing cabinet and found all my old paper dress patterns. I thought I might try and include some of the lovely paper patterns in a piece of art.
A very large abstract painting painted in many layers to create texture and depth. All the colours from the under layers show through to provide interesting character.
I have sewn many dresses over the years and it is always exciting to make a new dress. This piece shows the wearer showing off her new evening dress. I have used the paper pattern to create the dress, it has many folds and crevices – lots of texture and the end result looks like a gorgeous green taffeta.
I never want my pieces to simply be interior décor art but something individual and full of interest.
Hope you enjoy.
