Diva's Top

This is the photo that is my inspiration for this piece. I wanted to make the top and jeans very similar to that shown in the photo. For the top, I used a polka dot white on white fabric, shown here:

I placed the fabric over my full size drawing, on top of a light table, and traced the outline of the top on the fabric.  I also drew in the lines made by creases and wrinkles in the top. My next step was painting the shadows on the top using ink and aloe vera gel. This is what it looked like when I was finished:

I used blue for my shadows because it coordinated well with the blue jeans and sunglasses. 
The top fabric was a bit see through and I did not want to be able to see the background fabric through it, so I lined it with a tan solid cotton fabric. It worked as a perfect lining for this fabric.

My next post will be about the blue jeans. Thanks for visiting my blog!
