SIA: Harlequin in rose + blue

It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge! This week, Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey has chosen this week’s inspiration artwork.

The inspiration artwork:

Salazar chose this Pablo Picasso painting to go back to the classics, as well as for the painting’s blue tones (although it’s actually from Picasso’s “Rose Period”), the dog, and the interesting harlequin details. You can read more details about the painting here, and more about Picasso’s “Rose Period” here.

I really love the soft colors in this painting, along with the bits of black. There’s lots of scope for interpretation here, from the colors to the patterns and even the backdrop.

How to participate in SIA?

Everyone is welcome to participate — bloggers, non-bloggers, all genders, all ages, even pets! Just send a pic of an outfit — selfies and flat lays are also welcome — inspired by this week’s SIA artwork to this week’s curator, Salazar, at 14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com by next Tuesday, June 19th. Salazar will then post the SIA round-up on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey, on Wednesday, June 20th.

Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with! 😀
