I seriously love painting on these wooden dolls – I can’t believe I put it off for so long.

    They are just gorgeous and must be so lovely to work with. Beautiful wood, such personality.

    I Love these! I particularly like how you have kept the wood-ness of them- the grain and color. I know I would have covered them with gesso first and lost so much, right at the start. And I can see why it was hard to start in on them- a blank prepared surface can be very intimidating.

    I love the way you are painting these faces. You are doing them the loobylu way….they are completely unique and individual. Keep going!

    it’s amazing how a few (albeit skillfully placed) lines van create such personality on inanimate objects. love the slightly uncertain expressions on the brown-haired ones!

    I was recently trying to paint on wooden heads….HOW on earth do you keep the paint from bleeding in the wood grains? My mom and I had a horrible result, and we resorted to using colored pencils!!! Any advice or tips would be a big help!Thanks!
