Fashion inspired watercolour paintings by Cate Parr

UK-born fashion illustrator, Cate Parr blends a combination of bold and pastel colours to create graceful, ethereal paintings that soften the air-brushed precision of glossy magazines.

Her paintings transform well-known figures into beautiful works of art, preserving their natural elegance and restoring a sense of old age glamour.  You know you’ve made it big when people start making watercolour paintings of your face. One day. One day.

Whilst originals are priced at around $200 each (Cate is currently based in California), you can pick up a print via Etsy for as little as a fiver. Cheap as chips. They would make a nice set of birthday cards too…
