SIA: Whistler watercolor

It’s that time again for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, this round curated by SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey.

SIA inspiration pick:

Salazar has been scouting out a watercolor painting for awhile, and finally came across a watercolor sketch by James McNeill Whistler via the open content on the Metropolitan Museum of Art website and digital collections. This will be the third time we’ve featured a Whistler painting for SIA, but the first time with a watercolor. And the crowded street scene, all in neutrals, feels like an unusual subject for a watercolor — and perfect for the autumn season!

How to participate in SIA:

Everyone — bloggers, non-bloggers, all genders, all ages, even pets! — is welcome to participate. Just send a pic of an outfit — selfies and flat lays are also just fine — inspired by this week’s SIA artwork to this week’s curator, Salazar, at 14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com by next Monday, October 2. Salazar will then post the SIA round-up on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey, the next day.

Can’t wait to see what y’all are inspired to wear!
