COOL COLORS AND THE LITTLE BLACK SKIRT
Am taking some art classes at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and we are currently painting landscapes, blending the use of cool colors like purples and ultramarine blues, with warm colors like burnt sienna, oranges, and amber. I couldn’t help infusing that color scheme to my outfit today. Perhaps I’ll be sharing a few paintings and sketches once in a while.
I’m a huge fan of impressionist painters like Degas, Monet, Mary Cassatt, Van Gogh, and Pissarro. These painters not only painted modern life in its element, but they embraced unconventional methods of painting, which in the beginning was frowned upon by academic painters. Baltimore is a city that’s huge on art and I am looking forward to exploring the museums this summer. Additionally, the city hosts the Artscape. The largest FREE arts festival, that attracts 350,000 plus attendees over the three days. How awesome is that? This year's Artscape is from Friday, July 18th to Sunday, July 20th.
For my outfit, I donned a flouncy little black skirt, a blue menswear sweater, and wore orange heels as the accent color. If the weather got cooler at night, my purple pea coat would come in handy.
Hope you're having a great week so far.
Thanks for stopping by.
