Fashion Illustration – Tulle midi polka dot skirt

I thought I would do some color studies on rendering fabric. This skirt I found on pinterest looks very cute and interesting. I first laid on the light and shadow sides of the underlying skirt in the first wash. I used nickel titanate, it is an opaque body color, very light so its not necessary to add a lot of water and make runny washes. Then I added shadows, the polka dots and some highlights which the overlay tulle makes with gouche white. It was a lot of fun, very simple and quick.
