Charcoal-y Sunday morning...

Apparently, this post is not doll-related but definitely one of my greatest passions.

I had been taking workshops on portrait painting, and after four sessions, I feel in love with charcoal.

I love her vintage look!
I woke up early this morning to prepare some sewing to-do's when I felt the need to draw. So I grabbed my drawing kit, and just lose myself in a Tom Ford perfume commercial in a page from my Vogue. I love her vintage look :)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, darlings!

xoxo,
Shasha

    1. Hey you, Marta. Thanks much for the kind words. Charcoal painting is new to me and I'm so loving it :) I used to work with wet paints, but this one is just mind-blowing :) I'm planning to make 20 more before I would move on to pastel painting :)

      I hope to paint dolls portraits in the future, as well :)
