Two challenges in one!


The challenge on Inspiration Avenue is to create art featuring a doll. The first doll that sprang to my mind was a colorful Babushka doll. I've always liked these wooden nested dolls. So here is my rendition of a doll I found online.

I will also use this painting for the Sketchbook Challenge: flowers. I really enjoyed making the flowers on this doll!

Shalom!

  2. These Russian nesting dolls are favorites of my family. We have several bought in Russia & I even have one decorated with Elvis Presley!

  5. Truly a lovely rendition of this week's IA challenge. I first learned about these dolls watching a craft show on TV. What beauty, variety, and ability to nest so perfectly, took me aback. This is one lovely drawing/painting.
