☆ Dolls [inspiration avenue]
I wasn't really a doll child. I had the odd dolls of course, but I was more a stuffed toy kinda gal. I had my Tiffee and my very ratty panda!
I was the kind of girl who wanted a pound puppy rather than a cabbage patch doll. (Is it just me or are they slightly freaky?)
My sister, on the other hand, was a doll girl, with her 'Snuggles', a sweet smelling baby with her blonde hair matted and tangled. Her Snuggles was her constant companion.
You may ask why the reminiscing? And why dolls? Well, this week the Inspiration Avenue prompt was doll.
A very cool prompt with huge ideas, but this week I found I struggled with the actual painting.
I struggle with liking this image I came up with, part of me thinks - 'cute!' the other half of me thinks - 'meh'. There is something about this image that confounds me...
Anyway, today I was working on another painting and I noticed that these girls were very doll like in their baldness! So before I added hair I took a photo.
Maybe dolls in progress?
If you have a moment pop on over to the inspiration avenue website to check out the entries.
Have a great week
