Guo Pei fashion exhibit

Meeeoooow, Monday!  Went to Singapore recently for a short vacation, and mainly to see the fabulous Guo Pei fashion exhibit at the Asian Civilizations Museum.  It was such a treat to see all those exquisite gowns up close!  So nice to be able to see all the intricate embroidery/design details!  

This showstopper robe was the first thing you see of the exhibit... 

I did not include all of the photos of the gowns in this blogpost.  Flash photography was not allowed.  So some of my photos did not come out too well. The exhibit lighting was not very suitable for appreciating all the design details.  It certainly looked very dramatic but it was a bit too bright on the gowns and casted dark shadows, which made it difficult to see those details.  The gowns below are some of my faves in the exhibition.

Doodle... sleek goth

Meeeoooow, Monday!  ... and back to hairstyle fashion sketching...  I really like the sleek and wispy layered hairstyle, but the finished drawing looks a bit goth though.  😺😺😺

Doodle - pastel garden

Meeeoooow, Monday!   Coloring my flower doodles. They take some time to color as I just a fine-tip brush, but still a lot of fun.  Still learning to select colors...  Difficult to decide which colors to use!  There are too many colors!  😺😺😺

Doodle... sakuras on rainbow

Meeeoooow, Monday!  Some fun with flowers and colors!  I am currently on my cherry blossom flower mood!  Been drawing it a lot lately!  Originally I sketched this vertically, but after I tweaked the drawing and colored it, it looked better horizontal.  😺😺😺
