I’m passionate about every aspect of the fashion arts from fashion sketching to draping, patternmaking, construction. That’s why I teach ALL of it. For the topic of Fashion Sketching, today I’d like to share some of the variety of art supplies that I commonly use during my live zoom sessions in Fashion Sketch Group. (you can join us!)
(I’ll use spontaneous sketches from our sketch sessions as examples. All poses are 5-15 minutes, specifically to give just enough time to capture the essence and the energy what’s in front of us)
Within any time frame, it’s useful to prioritize from among the following:
state the shape of the garment’s silhouette (as well as that of hair, accessories
observe and articulate design details
use lines and edges to communicate drape of the fashion fabric
summarize color/ pattern/ texture story
tell an emotional story or feeling of fashion and style
I hope that this page showed you some of the ways you can bring art supplies to a live sketch session for model drawing and fashion sketching studies, to integrate and enjoy the skills of capturing fashion design and silhouettes to tell stories that have emotional meaning and expression FOR YOU, BY YOU!!!!
We meet every single week in Fashion Sketch Group. Join us weekly, and back it up with a course where you can go step by step deeper into model drawing and design sketching.
