Diva Dresses

A few weeks ago I had a friend through PBS ask if I would make her some 5 x 7 wall hangings based on one of the designs I sell on my Etsy site. I came up with this clean simple design (so not my norm) and she loved it.

To make all the images the same I had to create a template which I traced onto each watercolor. So yes, they are the same, as close to the same as hand tracing can get.

The customer asked for Jewel tones, I hope I got close enough with the colors. I love jewel tones but obtaining the rich vibrant tones in watercolor proved to be very difficult.

I learned a lot about water coloring and image transferring on this project and now I have a ton of ideas. I will also be teaching the techniques I learned in my next art class.
