I came across High Society Girl on the front cover of a property magazine delivered to my office. The image was too tempting and had to be drawn before being recycled.
The only reason the image was on the front cover was because there was an article regarding high society living. The rest of the magazine was uninteresting and features properties in Central London that no one can afford.
Boy, I do draw a hell-of-a-lot-of girls but I think that most artists like to draw the figure of a woman and it’s a good way for a female, I think, to express feelings in her drawings. Yes, I do want to be her, Bettie Page and Wonder Woman! I did want to be a dress designer from the age of about 8 to 8½ and used to sketch images just like this one.
I didn’t draw the full image; cutting her dress off halfway otherwise I would have had to draw everything really tiny to fit in the very long flowing dress. I added a smoky background and changed the dress slightly using only shades of black and white. My favorite tools of pens, highlighter and the water color brush.
A fellow Draw Something friend of mine, from time-to-time also draws some lovely ladies in cocktail dresses. Most probably all waiting for a nice dry martini or two or three like me 🙂 From elegant invitations to the finest cocktails – summer soirée.
