Ruby red Marchesa
I repeat myself, you’re probably thinking about now. But, what can I say? I simply can’t get enough of this fall of reds. It’s a ruby red drape that the Autumn is spreading out, to let the Winter enter the scene. The lovely show offered by the falling leaves is not came at its end, yet the winter is coming with its celebrations. And this is an example of a perfect dress for a celebration.
While I was browsing some of my favorite blogs, I bumped into an amazing picture of this stunning Marchesa evening gown, magnificently shot by the very talented Jamie Beck (if you haven’t noticed that, I’m a huge fan of her!). The play of color hues gave me the inspiration for drawing this illustration and a little experimentation brought me, throughout a few versions, to this result.
“Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn”.
