Dresses from Dear Golden… 11×4, and 8×10 Watercolor and Ink on Yupo … click here to purchase
I am not sure why I didn’t paint dresses on Yupo sooner, I totally am in love with this stuff! Yupo is a synthetic paper, and super slippery. I’ve tried it before with flowers and landscapes, and just wasn’t feeling it…until… Lee Monts, an awesome artist and friend, painted his latest landscapes using Yupo with INK. So I went to City Art, scooped up a bunch, and am loving it!

I love this color.
Dear Golden  has so many pretty colors in her shop right now, this gorgous blue-green being one of them. I couldn’t resist a little series. The top two are 8×10, the third one down is 11×14, and the bottom one is 16×20. Perfect for hanging together in a bedroom, office, or laundry room?

Vintage Dresses… Charcoal and Watercolor

Filed under: dresses, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 4:12 pm
I’ve had a few requests for some more vintage dresses! These two are watercolor and charcoal on 140lb, not 300lb like that last few. I like the way the paint runs on this weight better. These dresses are more gorgeous pieces of vintage goodness from Dear Golden. She’s got new Spring and Summer dresses starting to pop up in her shop, just in time for the lovely weather we’ve been getting here in South Carolina! I’ve got several more from Dear Golden in the works, in ink and watercolor!

 I am in love with Dear Golden’s gorgeous vintage, and I am so happy to have painted these for Lauren, from her personal favorites! If you haven’t already,  pop over and see what her shop has to offer! But if you want to buy everything you see, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

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?
