Green Dress

My goals in this painting were to make the dress look like actual fabric and to use many different shades of green. I did this by looking very closely at the fabric and painting as many details as i could. My painting is about fabric and lighting and all the different shadows within the dress. THe most difficult challenge was making the correct shape of the dress. I lined up the dress with the lines on the wall to help me. My painting really works all the different colors in a dress that was made with only one color of fabric. I have learned how to make many, many shades and colors out of only one color. Peggi Kroll helped me because she paints fast and gets all the colors out right away and paints what she sees.
