Absinthe Robette by fit51391 Absinthe Robette by fit51391
A multilayered papercut based on the "Absinthe Robbette" poster by Privat Livemont ([link])

Done on plain watercolor paper and colored with watercolor paints after each piece was cut. Dress is made from tracing paper.

Took about 15 hours to stencil, cut, paint, and reconstruct.

Thanks so much :) It really is a classic and it's one of my favorite pieces -- I had a great time twisting my own interpretation of it.

haha. How funny. I hadn't ever consciously noticed this illustration until today... and I saw it twice.

Using the tracing paper for the dress was a fantastic idea. This looks great.

Your work is so unique and fun and, of course, really pretty. This is a really good rendering. :rose: Well done! Must have taken a lot of work, right?

Thank you so much! This was my most labor intensive piece to date -- especially because it was the first 3 dimensional and watercolor piece I had done. It resulted in a lot of swollen knuckles and some sleepless nights, but I think it was all worth it!
