live sketching at Lucian Matis fall 2013
My last show of the fall 2013 season was Lucian Matis, and it was one of those shows when one sketch works out so incredibly well it feels like it is not even worth scanning the rest. This gorgeous white feminine silhouette called for a Gruau-esque outline emphasis, and this result pleases me very much. I love how the last show flows so easily after a week’s worth of practice.
To those who ask me if I’d ever abandon analog media for digital totally – I don’t think I ever could, even though I find exploring the possibilities of new media fascinating. There just isn’t any digital equivalent – yet – to the expressive, variable, accidental qualities you can get with a brush. It feels very appropriate that I bookended this fashion week with two shows done in watercolour.
