olde_fashioned: (18th C. -- Gainsborough pink)
This time the paintings I've iconed are all by Romney, Raeburn, Reynolds and a delightfully 18th century-style artist by the name of Charles Chaplin. ;-) Even though he lived and painted in the Victorian era, I felt his work was sufficiently "18th century-esque" to include here.

This time I did a number of men and soldiers in addition to my usual pretty ladies in pretty dresses. ;-D

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (Leighton EB -- Stitching the Standard)
More icons. ;-) But this time they're not of a Jane Austen adaptation! The first 13 are of paintings by Sir Joshua Reynolds, the second-to-last two are EB Leighton, and the very last is The Seamstress by Rodefer de Camp. Enjoy!


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder )
olde_fashioned: (my drawing -- Katherine Parr / Jane Grey)
Here goes. :-\ I don't know how many/if any of you guys know I like to draw...but I thought I should publically humiliate myself by posting some of my dreadful scribblings here for the world to see. I regard these to be "not as bad as some" but not fantastic. ;-)

Mostly I draw women, (fully clothed!!) since I'm really more interested in drawing their clothes. ;-) A lot of what you're about to see was copied from paintings and/or fashion plates, and I do try to be as accurate (historical and otherwise) as possible.

More behind the cut...somewhat graphic intensive, sorry! )
olde_fashioned: (Reynolds -- pink artist)
As requested. ;-) A fresh batch of 18th Century icons, all of paintings and portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Also, for the most part, I've titled the icons with the name of the painting, so if you right-click, then select properties, you can see which one I used. ;-) Comment and credit, if you please.

Put even the plainest woman into a beautiful dress and unconsciously she will try to live up to it. )
