Above is a short video of me working on one of my lingerie paintings. I thought it would be fun to share some of my process for how these paintings come together. The video is sped up to 20 times faster than I usually work (which means that I paint polka dots incredibly slowly) and I cut out some of the boring watching paint dry parts. I hope you enjoy seeing how a lingerie painting comes together. As you can tell from the video, I don't sketch out the shape in pencil and I paint the initial shapes pretty messily. I like the texture of the watercolor and different layers of paint to be visible - it gives me the feeling of the delicate, sheer fabrics that lingerie is made out of. Here is a full shot of the finished painting:
If you're wondering why I am so interested in making lingerie paintings (and pins, and collages), let me know and I'll make a post all about my fascination, because I have many reasons. But one thing I love about keeping lingerie paintings around is that they are great body positivity reminders. And they're just pretty. In my opinion, a lingerie painting would make a great Valentine's Day gift, (for a loved one or for yourself). There's plenty of time to get one by V-day if you order from my shop.
