Do you remember this question back from art class in school? I always thought artists don’t really plan pictures to convey a message, they just have an idea and the rest is the talent to translate intuition into colors. They probably would have had a laugh if they could have heard the student’s ideas what might have been the intention of that red stroke down there in the left corner.
Why am I talking about this? I accidentally dropped a bottle of ink near one of my background canvases. I have a couple of those, cheap ready made painting canvas, grounded white and on a stretcher frame. I use them to reflect light or as backdrops. The ink splatter looked rather lost, so I decided to add some more. I tried to squirt a circle and used the shower to remove some of the ink. The result is the background you see in the pictures. Modern art, isn’t it?
But despite the post title it’s really just a background, and what I want to say is: The girls have more clothes :). I hope you are not tired of Viveca yet…
This time various stripes. Esmée and Viveca had a lot of fun posing for these.
This is the flower fabric I found a while ago. And even if the pattern is quite large, I really like this, even on the smaller dolls. Maybe the stripes and the flowers are a bit much, but I didn’t want to waste the bit of light with picking a plain shirt. The combination actually looks a bit like PJs. Never mind :).
This is the plaid dress I posted before, I just wanted to add these to show you the full dress. The salmon colored tunic dress has a layered skirt.
And I just love her hands and the way she can touch her face. The shirts look almost identical in the pictures, but the pictures where she touches her face show a light apricot striped shirt, the other one is pinker and the stripes are a bit smudged. I made a summer dress from this fabric and a quick belt to go with it as well. I love this girl in stripes and checks just as much as in flowers.
And I added a bit of gold and white to the background. So what DID the artist want to say with this? It was just an accident :D.
