Libby Caldwell - Doll with Beaded Collar

Ink on Paper, 6.5 x 8.5, $110

This is a journal sketch. I used both brush and dip pen for this. The doll is handmade, and has an intricately beaded collar and dried pods and woody tufts in her hair. Her face if made of fabric, and her eyes, nose and mouth are all hand stitched. I like sketching and painting in ink because I can indicate these detailed areas very quickly. This is a technique I often use when I am journaling, and it's also one that I teach in my workshop: 'The Reflective Journey'.
My next workshop will be on April 25th & 26th 2009 at The Sedona Arts Center.
