My World of Watercolor

I’ve talked briefly about being a fashion design student, as well as a reader, but I never get to share much of what I do here. I thought it would be nice to share some of my artwork from the Spring that I worked on. We began learning watercolor in the Fall for fashion illustration, because it is the traditional method used to render ideas. Before using watercolor I used graphite and markers, so watercolor presented some challenges.

After much trail and error I have learned to appreciate it and I have found that it is much easier to work in my own style with watercolor, than with marker. Here are a few of my illustrations, which are all centered around the design idea of Shape-shifting, meaning that a garment has more than one way it can be worn. The look can be distinctly changed through a change of orientation of the garment, or through pulls, buttons and zippers.
