Clothes & Shoes by Arnoldo L. Romero

Greetings!  It's been a while, but I'm thrilled to have something to post amongst this talented group of artists.  The current theme reminded me of the work I used to do during my college years back in the 80's, as a fashion illustrator for a small chain of department stores.

Express Yourself!
14"x11" Mixed Media
By Arnoldo L. Romero
The background is a page I used to cleanup my brayer when I was working on some Gelli prints I couple of weeks ago.  I started of by sketching the figure with charcoal and then coloring her with pastels.  Next, I sketched the flowers and used oil pastels to color them.  Finally, I used a calligraphy marker and a pen to letter in the title.  It was fun illustrating this young fashionista!

Hope you have a blessed week ahead!
