This is a watercolor demo I did for the class Objects, Fashion and lifestyle Illustration at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was an awesome experience, I talked to the students about my job as an illustrator and art director and showed them one of my approachs to paint a handbag. It was really enlightening to listen to fellow artists and get to understand how it feels today to be about to graduate. I think it was a good talk for all of us.
In broad lines, I first sketch, ink with watercolor, apply big masses of color and work out the values. Texture is last which was applied with colored pencils. I can't wait to go again!
