Gentle spirit....

The last doll I made for a friend creeped quite a few people out lol
I decided to make a doll for another friend who I go "investigating" with.
Last time I saw her she gave me some of the softest fabric I have ever handled...positively "wispy", so I knew I had to make the complete figure and keep it light and a little floppy.
 Her character came through immediately, so soft and gentle...
 hard done by but ever smiling...
 a strong beautiful soul.
 I could barely bring myself to add colour to her face at all...
 so delicate you can hardly feel her in your hands...
 around her neck, a fine plaited thread....
 holding a delicate silver key.
What her story is I don't yet know, but I'm sure my friend will soon be able to tell me.
Enjoy :D XXX

It's no good....

been soooooo long since I got messy, needed to work big...
 and my eldest had requested a new canvas...
 in black and white...
 with a hint of red...
 and 2 figures.
 I wanted them to look romantic rather than sexy...
 Still a few tweaks to the shading, but I love the way it feels right now.
Haven't decided on a title yet.
Hope they like it :D
