Inspired by Egon Scheile’s women I decided to see if I could make something in my simple cloth doll format.
It is pleasurable to make the faces in a new way — Prismacolor pencil and permanent marker around the eyes, cloth lips hand stitched into place and slightly embellished with embroidery thread. The hair is in sort of block form, just shapes with tendrils, to represent and up do.
I think the underwear will be most successful in all white, off white. For this first try I used this pale brick color for the top but it’s cut and color are too modern. I need to keep them simple and yet sort of voluminous.
I’m making three curly stars this weekend. I will get back to the women later. I also have biz taxes due soon. Paperwork and doctors appointments and errands . . .
I am working on a series of girls for the DarcyArts shop. A redhead is next. She’ll have green eyes.
I gave the blonde lavender eye shadow and a little purple star tattoo high up on her cheek.
And, by the way, LA Ink starts next Thursday. Will it be frustration or fun?
