Expressive fashion abstraction in watercolor illustrations

Painting with watercolors is a combination of attempting to control the medium and embracing its intrinsic chaos. This series of fashion illustrations by Mats Gustafson deftly walks the line between the two extremes.

When working with watercolor, the flow of the paint is controlled by the wetness of the paper. Timing is crucial to any successful watercolor, making it the unseen element in any painting. Gustafson successfully harnessed the natural flow of watercolor and uses transparency to create exquisite forms.
