Two more - Charming Dolls - ICAD #14 &15


I loved drawing the nesting dolls. I have six sets now and love each one.
Two of them I painted myself. That was enjoyable and should do it again one of these days. Very relaxing:)

 I hope everyone enjoys this lovely weekend and Father's Day!

I didn't know you could paint those nesting dolls yourself--but, of course, I suppose all kinds of people do it. Just never thought about it before. Cool!

Love both your sketches. Happy Father's Day!

Wonderful drawings, Fran! LOVE that charm bracelet. I used to have a set of Native American themed nesting dolls. Have never bought a set to paint but was tempted to a few times.

Have a great weekend!

We celebrate Father's Day in September here in Australia. :)

I still have my set of nesting dolls waiting to be painted. Can't decide if I want to paint them to reflect the layers of myself that I actually am or the layers that I'd like to be.... LOVE your sketches as always xx

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments:)

I put a link on the post to a site that sells blank dolls.

Tschochka is Russian, I'm pretty sure.
