It’s time for another episode of Living Skirt Art. Our first attempt was very well received, so we wanted to bring some more skirt art alive for you. We have a skirt art board over on Pinterest (you can see it by clicking here) and we have loved discovering all the beautiful and fun art with skirts in them. So we decided to take a another piece of skirt art and use it as a starting point.
Today our inspiration is A Child in The Rain by Albert Ludovici Sr. He created this lovely pencil and watercolor piece in 1885. He studied at the Atelier Drolling in Paris. He was an established artist, and he actually painted portraits for King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in England, where he lived. Two of his five children became artists also…kind of a generational thing like we do here at Skirt Fixation!
We settled on A Child In The Rain well, because it was raining and overcast, and some of the other skirt art pieces we wanted to do just weren’t going to work in the rain! So we narrowed it down to several, discussed the skirts and possibilities, and settled on this one! Annie studied the piece of art very carefully and helped put together her outfit. She noticed several small details and insisted on the red flower in the hat. She also hunted through the scarf collection until she found the perfect shade of blue! I happened to have a straw purse the same general shape as A Child In The Rain. Her oldest brother chipped in the hat. I love the raindrops in the photo!
