Daily Painting Day 37

For Tonight

After I finished painting “Through their Eyes” I decided to paint this dress. I have seen many different sketches, images, and paintings with different dresses and thought I would like to try painting a dress too. I put it off for quite awhile but decided this was the day. After the painting was done it look unfinished and could not figure out what to put. That is when I chose to post the “Through their Eyes” painting instead.

I wanted to add something to this painting so I started to think about French doors but the location of the dress seemed off. Well that was my thought. Then a friend suggested one of my other paintings like “Let me in” or “Sit and Ponder” and take from those paintings and paint from the inside looking out. So this is what I came up with.

“For Tonight” by Doreen J. Bowers

9″ x 12″ in. Watercolor painting using Arches hot press watercolor paper.

Something about these beautiful flowing dresses that makes me think of fairy tales. Just a little something personal….I never put on this type of dress. For my prom I did wear a gown but it was a sheath style gown. I always wanted to try one of these on just to see but never had the chance. So for tonight this was me living the fairy tail through my painting.

I got to say I am so happy with the way this came out. Hope you like it too!

Have a great day!!!
