Back to the Drawing Board

This past week I combined several of my creative streams in these drawings. First I was playing around with drawing one of my cloth dolls.

This is Lily. She has a handspun angora rabbit yarn wig.

I drew Lily and added some of my doodled flowers.

I enjoyed this drawing so much that I wanted to do a watercolor version and this is the result.

I usually strive for realism when I draw people. And I am not always pleased with the results! But since I was drawing a simple, stylized doll the resulting simplification, a sort of symbolic child resulted. It is fun! It reminds me of some of the paper dolls I drew as a child.
