Vintage Dresses… Charcoal and Watercolor

Filed under: charcoal and watercolor, dear golden, dresses, etsy, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 11:04 pm

 I have a thing for vintage dresses. Lauren, of Dear Golden was nice enough to let me use the photographs of the gorgeous dresses that she’s got in her Etsy shop to paint! I painted them with charcoal and watercolor on 300lb Arches cold press, and I think I may do them again in acrylic, and pen and watercolor on 140lb is in the works… I love the simplicity of the photographs that she takes, and think that maybe a series of paintings of dresses would be nice for a bedroom, maybe? 


  1. These are gorgeous–simple, yet descriptive in your technique.
