Painting Process = Sweater Design Process

I forgot how much i love Drawing & Painting... really- considering all the years i had in Arts Training - i wish i had more time for myself to just sit down and draw draw draw...

I started thinking about painting for a reason- since to me the Painting Process is no different than the Sweater Design Process i recently described in my book Luxe Knits:
It starts with an inspiration...

Then the line sketch...
Then the colored sketch...


And only then you do the actual painting...


...i thought a couple mural paintings i did a while ago could best describe the process...here is another one...
Initial sketches:

Finished Mural:

  2. Hi Laura, you do the most amazing work and just love your craft. How did you ever get to be so clever. Lots of hard work and patience I imagine, but born under a lucky star with your creative art.

    Thanks for your work. Miranda.
