Wearable Fall Art

watercolor painting

I am used to see my art on the wall of art collectors. But I was curious how the Fall Art would look like on clothes items. How the fall leaves, for example, would fit into the wardrobe.

The artwork Autumn Flow looks great not only on the wall as a framed art; but, as well as the scarf or top or even a dress:

Another artwork that I've created as a fall pattern, contains deeper solid colors of the great season:

It does look cute on the skirt, short sleeve top design, and a dress:

Three Fallen Leaves - Autumn Trio

watercolor paintings

I am welcoming Fall with a new composition that is created with my watercolor leaves painted in realistic technique. 
And even though in California the season is not as pronounced now as it is on East Coast or Mid West; it is still so nice to see some trees turning colors and bringing so much joy to the artist's eye.

In these three paintings of Autumn leaves I tried to capture not only the beauty of the leaves themselves; but, as well as the sunshine that allowed the gorgeous shadows to make the paintings more interesting and alive.

From Abstract Watercolor To Boutique

watercolor painting

One of my paintings from Vivid Abstract Vibrant Sensation series has been selected to accompany Fall Collection of Sandbar Boutique LLC, an online retailer of fine women's clothing, jewelry and accessories (http://www.sandbarboutique.com). The creative team of the boutique chose this painting because it was perfectly resembling the burst of hues of a great season.

I believe it is looking pretty good for a background on the boutique's website:



Also, I would like to point out that this particular abstract was already presented in my own so to speak boutique in RedBubble Art Shop .
The light sleeveless dress looks vibrant and cheerful in this color theme:


So is more dressy outfit that is good for any occasion from the office wear to a party dress:




Needless to say, the silky scarf with this Vivid Abstract is presenting a great pattern when it comes to the large area such 55"x 55" dynamic burst of colors:


I love how the pattern looks on the mini-skirt as well. So trendy! So bright!


But my personal favorite is a woman chiffon top that undoubtedly is the winner of my Vivid Abstract Vibrant Sensation collection!

Whimsical Garden Decorative Design

wall art

In my new collection Whimsical Garden, I am using some old watercolor techniques with a new approach. I decided to block the color with the help of protective medium in order to allow the watercolor to flow only in one particular area. It reminded me batik style technique but with the new trick. The possibilities of this kind of style are endless. 

Here is another one for example:

I have selected the color pallet from light green to deep Paynes Gray thinking about departure of the Summer. 
It was fun to imagine these designs on the stretched canvas prints with mirrored sides :

Also, this style of decorative watercolor was "screaming" to me to try it on pillows designs:

And I wouldn't be true to myself if I have not tried to see how these designs will look in the simple off-white and black interior. 
It was looking pretty good as the matter of fact:

Another design that was created in the same color theme, was the Organic Decor that has softer lines and mellow edges. I used wax application in order to achieve this effect.

Here is the end result.

This soft organic paintings looked sweet on any decorative style print and even on bags:

Yes, Summer might be almost over, but my Decorative Gallery will have the memory of this season forever :)
