How to Simply Paint a Fashion Illustration

Simply Create your own outfit with our fashion painting activity kit. The template, set of Simply watercolour paints and this step-by-step guide will show you how to use the watercolours effectively to complete your fashion design.

Step 1

Use the template

Sit comfortably at a table with all your equipment provided within the kit. Firstly, squeeze a small amount of each colour onto a piece of paper or an artist’s palette. Then use the pre-printed template provided to help you create your painting. In this demonstration, we will work on a fashion design using Simply Watercolour paints.

Step 2

Skin and hair

Mix Orange and White to achieve an apricot pale pink colour. Then apply it to the entire skin of the character. Next, with the Yellow and Orange, create the hair using the Orange to add darker strokes to the tips and strands of the hair.

Step 3

Trousers and hat

Use Black for the trousers, hat and newspaper. Dilute with water or mix with a small amount of White paint to achieve a very light Grey, use less White to create a slightly darker grey for the shadows. Use pure Black for the inside of the hat.

Tip: wash the brush well with each colour change.

Step 4

The t-shirt

Mix Blue with Red to create Purple to paint the zebra pattern on the T-shirt. To achieve a lighter Purple, add White or dilute the paint using a small amount of water.

Step 5

Jacket and handbag

To complete your painting apply Red paint to the collar of the jacket, the handle of the bag, the ribbon of the hat and the lips of the character.

For the entire jacket and the front part of the purse, simply dilute the Red with water to create a faded pink, or add a small amount of White to the red paint to achieve a lighter Red.
