It took longer than usual to complete this set of family dolls with diverse hobbies and interests. I was having too much fun painting all the little details!
The only problem I came across was not to get too carried away.
It was a toss up between gardening or cooking for the dad…but in the end gardening won out. Any excuse to paint a garden gnome is a good excuse in my book!
I always liked painting a matryoshka within a matryoshka. There’s just something so surreal about it.
For the travel books and map, I had to break out my .0000 brush.
If you’re a Peter Alexander fan, you might recognize the carrier bag (left) that’s been knocked down on the side by the ferret.
No family matryoshka is complete without a beloved pet!
