"Heading to the Beach" Abstract, 36" x 48" Available. Inspired by Project Runway, Season 11, Episode 9, Patricia Michaels design
The episode in which this outfit was created was the Lord and Taylor Challenge. The winning designer's outfit would be sold at Lord and Taylor department stores. The price point was to be $250, which means the garment should be produced for much less than that. Although it was a team challenge, designer Patricia Michaels took a lot of risks with her two-piece outfit. A lot of people thought that two pieces, particularly with shiny pants, at just $250 seems to be a bit of a stretch for the Lord and Taylor buyer.
I actually really like the outfit, especially since it has four different oranges! That worked well for my painting. I just had to add the light pop as the oranges were just too similar in value. As you can see, there is a lot of paint on this one!
