So my next painting is one I found of Sienna Miller. Im not sure who the photographer is but I loved the shadows and thought that it would be a good challenge with the toning. I seem to be falling in love with black and white photographs at the moment but will deff do colour next. Might try a different media too and see what different effects I get. This one is A3 painted in Gouache.

So I have decided to move on to painting next. I figured sketching does look good and is my easiest media to use but I wanted to stretch myself and try doing something more difficult. So the photograph I chose to use is by Paolo Roversi. An amazing photographer. Infact I chose him because I had studied his work for an essay I did at LCF. His work very much focuses on light - which he uses to create natural beauty. The photograph is of the model Natalia Vodianova. This is actually one of my favourite fashion portraits! I painted using Gouache and it is A3. I will try to upload some more professional pictures later on.

If I'm being completely honest, Giorgio Armani doesn't really do much for me but this picture stood out. I adore the neckline and silhouette of the Armani jacket so I thought simple but effective. Fashion doesn't need amazing prints or textures to stand out and I think this proves it. Let me know what you guys think of this sketch either on here or on my facebook, I would love some feedback.

So I thought for my first blog post I would draw a few of my favourite designer adverts which I found from Vogue and Love Magazine. Drawings are done with pen and coloured pencils. See if you can guess which is which designer. If you dont get it then I'm appalled because with McQueens famous shoes and Mui Mui's iconic prints you cant go wrong. The illustrations look quite outlined because of the pen so might look at doing some pencil and watercolour next. Let me know what you guys think.
