Painting inspiration

September 23rd, 2008

These are sections of paintings from various Russian museums. As usual I’m very into pearls, lace, feathers, patterned fabrics, brooches and military regalia.

    It looks pretty lovely! Makes me want to go to the Louvre or another Museum…


  3. Ley says:

    Beautiful paintings!


  4. Leah says:

    Oh wow! The detailing on the clothes is exquisite. I am always impressed that people had such patience whilst painting (and in fact whilst making the clothes in the paintings) – I know I could never do it!

    Kris, I saw your items on your shop, I loved them all, but alas, I’m a poor college student who cant afford any of them :( Anyway, just wanted to say that they are gorgeous and all the best to you!
    Maybe one day I can afford it ;)

    Oh duh, sorry “taken at various Rusian museums.” Do you know if you’d be allowed to make any of these into prints??

    At The Tretyakov and The Hermitage in Russia, I didn’t write down the individual artists. Sorry! x
