Closet Confidential


This is what I did with Sketch "A". I'll let you know what the art director has to say but this is the story so far.

That's beautiful work. Poor woman!

One small point - and I may just have misread the scene, but the closer shoe has a strap - the one still on the woman's foot doesn't?

Let us know the final decision - this is fascinating.

Great observation Gillian, you are absolutely right, the strap of the footed shoe was undone but visible and I missed it.

I'm impressed.

I like it.
I like the details and observations, hadn't noticed the strap.
Like the highlights on the coathangers and the wear on the tights, outside of the left foot.

Looks great! Intriguing, mysterious, obviously a scene where foul play was afoot.

Sandy said...

Wow great work and so curious...I want to know the wole story. Interesting about that strap.

Your work is always amazing. From simple line drawings to full blown paintings, it's always a joy to drop by, and I NEVER comment enough. If I did you would think I was a weird stalker!!! Always an inspiration for me, not only in the work you do but the stamina you have to do it daily. I too have collapsed in the closet after too many pints of Theakstons Old Perculiar! Glad nobody painted me!!! Not pretty.

Digging all the detail, and variety of color.

I love this! I got a giggle out of this one, Nice to see some humor in art work these days.

First visit here, and I really enjoy your blog.

This is really good! I noticed the strap too then saw it mentioned already. I love the colors. ^^ I brought the picture up to a larger size and I really like the coloring, may I ask what you used to do this?

Stephen Gardner said...

Thanks everybody, I haven't heard from the art director yet but if he accepts the job I won't hear anything. No news is good news.

Cammi, all my painting are done in gouache, it's an opaque watercolor.

I need to have more coffee...it took me several seconds to notice the legs and feet sticking out of the closet. I was so busy looking at the clothing, bags, and shoes. Ha!
