LACMA Show Fashioning Fashion I & Mermaid with Clownfish Work in Progress

I was looking through my reference images files, and I came across two folders with images from the LACMA show Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700–1915.  I love fashion and find it very inspiring.  Here are some of the images to the show, I hope that you will enjoy them.  I will post more from this show on other Mondays, although probably not consecutively.

If you'd like to see what I have up of this show thus far, please click here.

I've been working on my mermaid with clownfish painting and my little clown fish solo painting.  In the work in progress piece with the mermaid, I think I am now pretty much finished with her face and I'm on to her hair...
