Golden tree . Sketchbook

Golden tree. My new sketchbook pages that I did last week.
I've used: Micron 005 pen in brown, watercolors, colored pencils and Gold gouache.

It took me a few days to finish the whole thing which was relaxing like zen meditation.
A little bit at a time.

Hope your last days of 2014 are going great :o)

Kioko . Kokeshi doll no. 8

Kioko (happy child) is the 8th doll in my kokeshi series. She and her tiny bird are handmade by me with lots of love and attention to detail from polymer clay, wire, glue, Japanese ribbon, beads and acrylic paints. She is a OOAK doll. Find her in my clay shop.

Miniature shadow box from:

This is how I choose the colors for every kokeshi.
I do a general sketch before making the actual doll.
These dolls need a lot of patience to create, but the results are always satisfying.
Hope they make you happy!

This is how I keep my clay clean and dust-free while working in stages.
