Be Inspired by Hockney – Weekend Style Challenge


Weekend Style Challenge - be inspired by David Hockney


Not long ago I went to the David Hockney exhibition a the National Gallery of Victoria (you can read about it here) and watching the way he builds his paintings from the background up (watch the time lapse video I created to see how he does it), I thought, why not think about using this concept for a weekend style challenge.  He uses colour and layering in stunning ways to create his artworks.

Hockney starts layering his paintings from the background, gradually adding detail as he fills in the foreground and finally adds the pops of colour and elements that make the whole painting sing.

For example, here your colour scheme of around 60% textural green (either use a forest or olive), around 30%  pink/red, then 10% neutral white, add a pop of yellow in a pattern or with an accessory for excitement, and think about how that little “horse sign” in the painting could be represented by a brooch.

Here your base could be grey with elements of green and violet.  Notice the fluffy texture in the bushes and grasses … how could you interpret that in your outfit?

Why not find that base outfit, those basics, and then add layers of other clothes and accessories to add texture, depth and colour.

So what a way to think about creating an outfit?  I’d love to see your style – feel free to share it on Instagram (tag me @insideoutstyle and #insideoutstyle) or over on my Style Lounge Facebook Group.
