Pretty Girls: my big Sissy
Today is the most special inktober... my big sister married the greatest guy. I had the honor of illustrating the cake topper and loved capturing the details of the dress and flowers. I'm so glad that my sister had a fantastic celebration, and I've never seen her happier ❤️

Pretty Girls: Junon
Christian Dior's 1949 masterpiece, and the best reason to use @danielsmithwatercolor iridescent watercolors. So excited to see this in person in December. Now I have to force myself to go to sleep so that I can be on point for maid-of-honor duty tomorrow!

Pretty Girls: Charles James
There's nothing more beautiful than a woman in a vintage #charlesjames gown. I just got to our lodge overlooking the North Carolina mountains to celebrate my sister's wedding. The next few days of posts are all going to be watercolor, because I couldn't risk a bottle of permanent India ink bursting inside of my luggage. Little @winsorandnewton travel pan palette and @danielsmithwatercolor dot chart are the perfect travel companions!

Pretty Girls: Golden Girl
So, I decided to switch things up today by purchasing some iridescent gold ink. Turns out, it is uber difficult to control, and lacks the satisfying swirliness of the black India ink. Oh well, I tried. Attempt to salvage shimmery portrait by using soft graphite and random dried flowers that are littering my workspace.

Pretty Girls: Me too.
Haven't we been silent long enough? And to be honest, isn't this EVERY woman?

Pretty Girls: Madame Gres
Had to take a little break from the harsh black and white. Shifting gears with this tiny vintage watercolor lady (technically, her hair is an ink wash). I've always admired the drapery and master technique that goes into every @madame.gres gown. Look for this gal in ornament format this holiday season!

Pretty Girls: Wind Whipped
It was crazy windy outside today as I walked to lunch at @grazemadison . If you closed your eyes, you could have guessed you were in Chicago. We celebrated #nationalcheesecurdday with a basket full of the best in town!

Pretty Girls: Hocus Pocus
What is the month of October without witches and black cats? I found the most pristine white pumpkin at this mornings farmers market (for only $1!) and thought it would make the perfect canvas for today's inktober sketch. In case any of you are wondering, #indiaink does take to a pumpkin surface- it just has to be coated with a couple rounds of spray sealant. The green watercolor, however, was not so easy to work with. If only I hadn't given away all of my acrylics!

Pretty Girls: Ink Spots
I have a special love for girls with freckles. Spots that make a person undeniably unique. And also 1000 times harder to capture. Squeezed in this tiny portrait just before midnight!

Pretty Girls: Audrey
"Paris is always a good idea."- Audrey Hepburn "Sabrina" 1954
A friend texted me this today, which made me so excited for my Parisian getaway (only 77 looong days away)! Later this evening, I went to @dane.arts Buy Local event and was talking to another artist about the fine line between painting what you really want to paint and painting what you think will sell. For me, it's Audrey. I remember doing a colored pencil drawing of her character in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and spending painstaking hours sketching and layering on the color. To get her satin gloves just right, I sat in the 90 degree sun so that the binder in the colored pencils would get soft and blendable. I really enjoyed trying to capture her spirit, and my process was awarded with Best in Show out of all the county high schools. My Mom is still disappointed that I sold it, but I'm glad someone gets to enjoy it!

Pretty Girls: Loosen Up
I started this sketch off with a creased scrap piece of paper so that I went into the painting process with little expectation. I didn't pre-sketch the figure with pencil and I didn't worry about where the ink would or wouldn't flow (as evident by the dark blob of a chin). It's not perfect in perspective or proportion, but the fact that I was able to loosen up and just sketch was the most important lesson.

Pretty Girls: In focus
I got a flu shot today and it knocked me off my feet this afternoon. I took a 4 hour "nap" on the couch after work and woke up feeling refreshed. Here's a little self portrait of my post-nap face; smeared mascara, bed head, and blurry-eyed. I've included a little more process into this one since I spent longer (1.5 hours) than most. Also, painting water on top of a painting (as opposed to on a blank sheet) is like painting blind! I had to move around to catch the reflection of the light just so I could see what I was doing.
