An Illustration of Susanne’s Dress

Here’s an illustration I did this weekend of Susanne’s dress. My original intent with this was just to practice rendering white duchesse satin and lace on a darker ground as a study for a larger 18 x 24″ illustration that I’m planning (this one is 11 x 14″). It’s rendered very simply in graphite and acrylic paint (I would normally use gouache but it was all dried out).
