Illustration Friday 'Old Fashioned' and Sunday Sketches
Today I really felt the urge to paint a face with a lot more detail, lately I've been working on a more simple style of mine and my jewellery but now and again I really need to paint something a bit more!
When I saw the word for Illustration Friday I thought about one of my most favourite fashions through history. I love the look of the 1920's, the ladies were so beautiful but fragile looking. I think that it looked like a lot of fun. My Great Grandmother was in her twenties throughout the 1920's and I think that she had a wonderful time when she was younger dressing up in all the latest fashions and going out dancing. I've seen photos of my great granny when she was young and she was a very very beautiful woman. Even in her nineties I remember how striking her blue eyes were. So I tried to include those eyes in my 1920's lady!
