Inspiration: 1960 Fashion
Designer: Yves Saint Laurent
Hello dear friends!
What do you think about 1960 fashion ? Most of the dresses from the designs above were black & white, pink & white, or blue & white.
I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and very inspiring! I also love those low definition b&w images, because they take away unnecessarily details leaving no more then 5 values, which make painting process a little bit easier.
Today we have a lot of assignments:
Put a lovely music on, I would suggest Beatles, but by all means any of your favorites will do. Dance for at least 5 minutes, better 10 before you start painting.
Draw/paint from references above using black and white, pink & white, or blue & white. You can paint each reference with a different mediums, for example:
charcoal or graphite
charcoal + acrylic paint
Acrylics or Oils
Watercolors or Inks
Don’t worry about outcome, enjoy the process.
Third and forth assignment are from previous challenges:
*Open your window and spend at least 10 minutes breathing fresh air. Relax and think about beautiful walk in nature. If it’s still cold on your part of the world – make sure to dress accordingly.
*Don’t forget about vitamins: eat some fresh fruits /vegetables.
