New Painting “Enshroud”

Leave a comment

I’m working on a series of paintings exploring the literal idea of hiding and or shielding oneself with clothing and textiles. Fashion is a great way to express yourself and it’s also fun to use to pretend to be someone your not. Although, it can also be used to blend in with everyone else, be completely unmemorable and almost disappear. Here is the painting progress of the first in my series entitled “Enshroud”.

My original idea was to make the background white and flat but after I drew this I realized I had to redraw it.

As a painter and artist I find it hard sometimes to not take my work too seriously, so I created this blog! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. In the mean time, if you are curious as to what else I draw, check out my online portfolio, http://jessicacaissie.com/
