I was in London yesterday and decided to spend the morning in my favourite haunt, the fashion room in the Victoria and Albert. I've always loved this wedding dress; there is an air of fairies and fantasy about it. I've always been a little scared of sketching this particular dress because with all those petals it is quite an undertaking, but yesterday I did and then went over it with ink later. When going over it with ink I couldn't see the actual dress to I had to trust my pencil sketch entirely.
And I almost never paint self portraits, but here is one I did yesterday that celebrates my new DIY fringe.
