roses in the garden

gouache on paper

this makes me want to paint all over some silk and make a dress out of it?  perhaps i will.  the little roses look a little like a messy tana-lawn print for liberty’s.

i found this image in my scrapbook and have been meaning to draw her for a while, i can’t remember where she comes from but she looks like she might be a russian ambassador’s wife!  sitting so proudly with her miu miu handbag on her peach leather settee.

pencil, felt-tip, biro and tip-ex on paper

sadly the dress doesn’t show up as much as i’d like, as it’s in tip-ex and the texture doesn’t show up on the scan.

i started this a couple of days ago, but really only began painting today.  she looks a little pale but i think i’ll leave it for today and have another look tomorrow with fresh eyes.  it’s taken from another drawing similar to yesterday’s lady in the sleeping jacket.
