SIA Inspiration: John Singer Sargent 3.0

It’s my turn to host SIA, and here’s my pick:

This striking painting is the portrait of actress Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth, by John Singer Sargent. I came across it while I was looking up beetlewing embroidery – I was going to pick a piece of beetlewing embroidery as the inspiration for this week, but since I already picked a piece of clothing for my previous SIA challenge (the Schiaparelli jumer), I decided to go with this painting instead, which not only features beetlewing but also has more colors and textures. So don’t forget to send me your outfits by next Tuesday, August 24th, and have fun!
