Paper doll on wood , Bea

This is Bea , I drew little alphabet letters on her shirt .

I have a doll collection , and these dolls always make me want to draw .
So last night I saw this doll on my shelf , she is an old rubber doll ..... I took her down , and drew her with my Inktense on illustration board.
I mounted her onto wood ,and then cut her out on my scroll saw
I made a little stand for her too !

she's in my shop

So sweet! I gotta find my inktense pencils....they are buried here somewhere...maybe under the couch...they are a lot of fun. Sandy, do you use a paint brush with them??

Sandy Mastroni said...

yes ! I use an angular shader brush
and sometimes I just dip the end of the pencil in water which makes the color REAL intense !

She's a cutie Sandy. My son had a wooden little rabbit that had a stand that you could change his little jackets and hats. It was a lovely piece of art.
