How To Paint A Corset...What Was I Thinking?...



How to paint a very large corset 38x48? Well, it is just about the same as everything else.

But this is what I was thinking yesterday as I painted this whopper.

*make it LUSH

*VIBRATE color all around

* remember to keep looking at that John Singer Sargent watercolor book on the studio chair

*he would be so proud of my subject matter

*make the form (dress form?) turn. PUSH light, shadow, halftone.

*can a dress form have cleavage? yes, to guarantee a sale it can

*control the value of the corset so I can put some high key SIZZLE on later

*wish I could wear this. It looks like a size 2.

*why do I love corsets so much and why are people staring through my studio door as I paint this?

*I must be strange? Reader, you don't need to post an answer to this.
