vintage dress paintings for the holidays

Introducing….. Allen Company Inc (soft and neutral…. grays, blacks, whites and browns), and Twirl Vintage (full of color)…. Two amazing vintage shops in which I found around a million or so dresses to paint. 
I’ve added a list of links to the side of my blog so that when you see these dress paintings and it makes you want to buy a vintage dress of your very own, you can easily pop over to one of the amazing vintage shops that I love so much and buy one! 
For the holidays, I am mostly doing black and white, silver and gold dresses. But I couldn’t leave out a green and red set! The green dress is from Allen Company Inc and the red dress is from Twirl Vintage. The green one has a bit of gold in it! Actual, real, sparkly gold! I stopped trying to find watercolors that were metallic and started watering down my Golden Acrylic Interference and Iridescent paints – and I LOVE the results. They look so amazing on my black and white dresses (post coming soon!)
I love love love green. It’s one of my very favorite colors. Red…  not so much. Maybe because I’m a redhead and red anything looks bad on me (or near me). So I generally avoid it, but I realize others don’t necessarily share my opinion., and I feel bad neglecting the red lovers of the world. The actual dress is pink, but I took a little liberty with it 🙂

Red Tulip Painting

I’ve been painting a lot of things really close up lately. I love how this painting is shapes and colors and shadows and light and then all of a sudden it’s a tulip! I’ve got a few more flower paintings in the works….
