Swatch

I've been wringing my hands over my "dusky" wedding colors, and it's been difficult to explain to my bridesmaids what I generally had in mind. My bridesmaids also live all over the US (and none of them close to me) so a lot of them will have to search for their dresses solo, and I think some of the girls have been nervous to just start looking without a narrower focus.

So I sat down with my watercolors and metallic nail polish and started hammering out swatches…

As you can see, there are multiple shades of the same color. So I'm hoping zoning into a color they like on the card will give them a starting point and help my girls get some bridesmaid dress clarity.

I'm a 30-year-old freelance artist living in Chicago. I paint, I draw, I book-make, I play guitar, imbibe in a lot of rye whiskey/South American red wine/dark stout beers. I watch a lot of Arrested Development, bad public access cooking shows and BBC Sherlock with my boyfriend. My vice is hours upon hours of Skyrim and Mass Effect. I wish I had more time to learn more things, like sewing and pastry making (I do make a kick ass chocolate chip cookie).
