Jane Bennet's Muslin Dress - The Process

This is my latest acrylic painting inspired by a lovely Regency dress I saw on Pinterest.  It looked like a perfect Jane Bennet dress to me.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art
I first painted my canvas dark and then sketched the dress in chalk.

This is a finished painting, I did most of the painting in just two colors, black and white, with just a bit of sienna in the background.  To be honest, I like it better in chalk :)
