She is some elegant lady in your mixed media piece, Arnaldo. Well done. Some stunning pieces of artwork on your desk - you have certainly been busy. Thanks for already visiting and for your comments. Yes, I've been having fun, too, playing with that new (to me)technique.
God bless.

Lovely post, great fashion work. Valerie
Laila said…
Oh, what beautiful fashion studies you've made. These were the type of drawings I learned when in school to become a tailor. I have a real crush on the 50's fashion and your first one reminds me of that.
Not sure I can manage a thousand words, but I really appreciate you sharing this post. Thanks.
Laila said…
Oh, and I saw someone call your colorful fashion drawing an abstract, it's really smashing and I believe they didn't notice the human body inside it. LOL.
Linda K said…
what an impressive collection of fashion drawings-really marvelous! Beautiful card for the FMS sketch too. Good for you to be able to get so much in in a day. happy summer!
Twist of Pink said…

Awesome drawing! Love it!
Ariel said…
Great illustrations. I especially love the third one for its bright colors and abstract pattern.
Have a great weekend
Wow, you've been busy! Lovely work!
Reader Wil said…
Superb , very beautiful! Each of these drawings are true masterpieces!
Thank you for explaining to me that the letter W is "doble V" . I should have known that if I had looked in my Spanish dictionary, but I was too lazy. I suppose it is the same in Italian and Portuguese? The W is not a strong letter anyway. But thank you!
Wil, ABCW Team
