Les Petites Dolls ...

This is a photo of my first real drawing effort in the Suzi Blu online class I'm doing. She was actually drawn (by me !!!!) onto a piece of 12" x 12" birch ply wood and then the outline is burnt using a Creative Hotmarks Tool (I always knew it would come in handy one day - lol).
The face is shaded with various watercolour and non-watercolour pencils and the background is painted with the first layer of ordinary craft acrylic paint. You're supposed to be using Stewart Gill paints but until I know whether I'm going to carry on after the class is finished, ordinary acrylic paint will do.
I have called her Emily, after my grandmother who taught me to knit and sew and who would have been dead proud of me for doing this ....
