AEDM 26, 27, & 28-Doll Sketches & a Doodle Sheep

Welcome back to the land of no feet! LOL
AEDM Day 26-Barbie stretching-I decided to try Barbie in a different pose. Unfortunately, her left foot ran off the page and her right foot ran into the previous sketch of Barbie leaping. It looked like ballerina 2 was kicking ballerina 1 on her behind, so I taped a piece of paper over ballerina 1's legs to scan 2's sketch. Not only does the tape show, but the edge of the paper too. This sketch should end where the tiles end. Also, AFTER I posted the sketch I noticed a little ghost in the background looking over the ballerina's shoulder. It's Day 28's sketch peeking through the paper. What can I say? Some days I should just stay in bed. :)
AEDM Day 27-Pirate again- Pirate girl was laying handy, so I decided to try her in a different pose also, and without the huge ruffle. One foot was propped up on something as she leaned against something else. I was mostly finished and decided to take a break. When I returned she had also decided to take a nap and had fallen over, so I did a little more to her and called it quits. I think the dolls are beginning to rebel on me. Anyway, it is what it is. A learning experience. :)

AEDM Day 28-Doll with a Hat-My father-in-law found this doll at a yard sale or flea market and brought it to me. She is white porcelin bisque with a cloth body, a blonde wig tied back in a pony tail, and a painted face with large brown eyes. Her clothes were gone, so I put this red plaid (I didn't have the patience to sketch the plaid this morning) cotton duster on her until I could sew her a new dress years ago. She's still wearing it. The duster was made by my Aunt Nellie in the 50's for my Tiny Tears doll. Anyway, she's also wearing brown cotton stockings, black patent shoes, and a straw hat (which I again got lazy on). She's not an expensive doll, but I like her, and I'm pretty happy with the sketch. Oh yes! I decided to try theatrical lighting and put the light below her. I like it! :)

This a doodle sketch that I did a while ago. It's not part of the AEDM project, but I'm beginning to want to see some color, so I thought I'd share it. I call it "Sheep in Pink." :) Hope you're having a nice weekend and I hope something on here made you smile!

Enjoyed both your blog and sketches. Everything made me smile. I made it to day 26 for aedm, then I had family for the holiday. Oh well, I'll try again!

Your barbies have so much details in it. Love your story about barbie two kicking barbie 1's butt. Barbie 2 is just kicking her off the page, so she doesn't have to share the limelight!

I love that you've started playing with the lighting, seeing how that affects the mood, etc. Wonderful practice. Love the sheep, so fun and colorful.
