My current obsession is painting....and my subject is Big Eyed Dolls! I am totally obsessed and I am having a blast learning to draw and paint in this style. As many of you know from previous posts, I love to draw and paint but get very frustrated trying to do something that uses realistic proportions. I stepped back and started looking at some of my previous attempts and realized that I continually tried to draw a very large eye with huge pupil in a realistic face....and that's why it just never felt right. Light bulb moment!
I looked at online workshops to help me learn more about this style and I found Ady Almanza's DollDreams on NING. She has wonderful classes including a Doll Dreams Basic class that teaches you how to draw and paint a doll step by step. She also has little mini workshops and that's where I did these two little paintings. Can you tell I'm excited? I know these big eyed girls are not everyone's cup of tea but I am in LOVE!
