This is actually the third painting I began even though I haven't finished the first and am almost done the fourth. Sometimes this is often how the creative process works for me. I love how this looks as it is but I know it's not done and I'm not sure what colour I want the dress though I am thinking of a creamy white as the original dress had a cream background with red patterns.
The other thing is that these dresses are printed fabric but I really like the look of solid colours against my patterned backgrounds. The challenge with that is that I have to be careful about painting over an area with pattern that I'd like to keep, though working with acrylics gives me a little time to wipe an error back using water and a rag, especially if I make sure to give the background plenty of curing time so that I don't erase that lovely under painting.
Now that I've spoken about it, I think I might be ready to commit to actually painting it! Or maybe I'll begin another one. :)
