Paint by Numbers

08 April 11

I loved the paint by numbers-y patterns at Basso & Brooke and Jill Stuart AW'11, I think they look so great together. When I was a kid I LOVED doing paint by numbers kits, though my favourites at the time were still-life floral arrangements and very jolly labradors. Anyway, I had a really satisfying time drawing the clouds above, even though I got to the end and realised that I basically ripped off The Cloudspotter's Guide cover. Oops!

Oh and the shoes and socks aren't part of the look, I made 'em up. I also want to mention the amazing Paint By Numbers Museum, which is a great online resource if you're into that kind of thing!

Loving the whole paint by numbers thing (and the Cloudspotter’s Guide-style clouds!). One of my friends recently got commissioned by a label called Beautiful Soul to illustrate the print for their new collection, called Painting By Numbers. Check it!
