A Sunday Afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum by Vilva A Sunday Afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum by Vilva
Inspiration from left to right:
:bulletred:Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges-Pierre Seurat based off of one of the ladies in the painting itself; the one in a red top and holding a red umbrella. I also wanted to give a nod to the pointillism used for the coloring!
:bulletred: Irises by Van Gogh I wanted to draw a petal-like top of sorts.
:bulletred: Dancers, Pink and Green by Edgar Degas loosely referenced off of a little girl who was passing by and wearing these cute pleated jean skorts

I visited New York for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I got to go to the Met museum! It's definitely a super inspiring place to be, and I ended up wandering around the European Paintings section. It's like a huge web of galleries, really (40 something rooms?), and I actually got lost in it because I hadn't bothered to take a map :/ Anyway, there were benches, so I was able to sit down for a while to sketch things based off the paintings themselves or even just random people walking by. I'd love to know if you have a favorite out of the three! :aww:

But yes. I'm finally back from a month-ish long break :'D Vacation's been really great, but I've also been quite busy, and I'm happy to be home!

That is sooo cool! I know of all those pieces, and it's really interesting to see someone else's own take on them ^^ Especially since you designed clothes based off them. I like how you were able to modernize them.

Thank you! :aww: Maybe it gets moved around? I know for certain it was at the met for some time over summer though- I even took pictures in front of it!

Ah, I got it: it looks like the study for the piece is at the Met. You should swing by Chicago for a look at the real thing... stunning.

I loveloveLOVE the first design; the colors are vibrant, the lines are clean and, and the pointillism inspired texture is very fitting. :iconiwantitpplz:
