Simplicity Series One – Acryllic paintings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This a series of three paintings I have just recently finished called Simplicity Series One. It is inspired by the illustrations on the cover of Simplicity patterns. Around the edges I have incorporated actual sewing patterns in collage form and the rest is acrylic paint and a small amount of modelling paste. I was going to try and sell these in a cafe but I have not worked up the courage yet to go and ask.

I should add that the sewing patterns are vintage styles that I’ve collected not modern ones but you can probably tell that.
