Illustration Friday: New

New-Dress
9″ x 9″
gouache,ink, fabric, and thread on paper

It’s been a long time since I did a drawing for Illustration Friday and with my trying to work on a drawing every day it seemed like a good time to give it a go again. The topic this week is “new”. My thinking when I first thought of it was the excitement of a new dress. In reality what the “new” in this piece was me playing around a little with technique and materials. The two new techniques are painting a color on the paper and drawing top of that paint as well as cutting a piece from the paper and sewing some fabric over the cut paper.

This is a pretty simple little experiment but I’m excited to try some of these ideas in more complex pieces.
