I'm pretty happy with the way this new doll has turned out. She is "Aschenputtel" (aka Cinderella). To finish her, I made a dress and apron which I dirtied up with stain. I made a simple ladder-back chair for her to sit on, a mouse, a pumpkin and a basket (yes, I wove the basket) of logs. here she is in a pensive moment dreaming about princes, grand balls, fairy godmothers and such.

This new piece I've been working on is progressing........here are a few more pictures. I painted the face at night (always a bit fraught) so I will need to do a bit of patching up and repair work on the paint-job. Otherwise I'm happy with how it is turning out. Clothes next. The first image shows the cloth body with the sculpted parts added and under-painted dark brown. The middle picture shows the completed painting and the top image is a face close-up.
