"Beach Haven" Abstract, 36' x 36"
Inspired by Project Runway All-Stars, Season 5, Episode 7, Sam Donovan design
This was the "bait and switch" episode of project runway where the designers use a randomly assigned fabric type to create a high-end evening resort look. But ... after the designer's finished drawing their designs the fabrics were switched and they were stuck with another designer's fabrics. Sam designed a sky blue and periwinkle halter-top gown with a very low open back. It’s simple but the silhouette is effective. By the way, the fabric was upholstery weight!
I love the horizontal design of the dress and fabric and was inspired to paint this beach themed painting for today's painting. I added a few more colors to make the painting interesting and love the end result!
