My latest doll...

Here is a WIP, I kinda like her, but she's still missing that " Izzyiness " that i have been trying to capture. Not sure on her dress color, yet. Dixie sent me some beautiful burnt orange Thimbleberry print , maybe i'll use that? Hmmm? I can see a few changes i need to make...like the black lines in her hair, that you can't see otherwise? Crazy....Back to the drawing board....
Many Doll hugs,
Jackie



Here she is after i gave her more eyelids...

Jackie - she is beautiful. I need to come up with a better word, 'cuz I'm repeating myself. How about this. She is gentle and honest and straightforward just as she is. Leave her alone. She looks like an early American folk portrait. I love her. Sometimes painting burnt umber over black gives an interesting effect.
