This little Russian style dolly was a dream to paint, with a fine brush and a permanent marker to add detail to her belly flowers. Unfortunately, those pretty details were smudged when I added varnish. Lesson learned.
Tiny details like white dots to add shine to her eyes and lips, and a saucy arch to her eyebrows brought her to life.
This little trio was painted with watercolour, which creates a different effect. I love how their eyes turned out so differently, giving them an air of gossiping socialites at the garden ball. Perhaps they're discussing the flower hats I hope to make for them this week. Or maybe they're discussing the latest book they read. Anything goes in the world of peg dolls!
