matryoshka doll painting

matryoshka painting

a few weeks ago, my friend asked me to do a painting for his friend. he told me i could paint anything i wanted so i painted a matryoshka doll.

i used poster color because i find it easier to mix them. first, i did a study of the matryoshka dolls. i wanted it to have simple patterns only, i ended up with strawberries and cool colors. once i finished the notebook sketch, i drew a bigger one on the canvas. the canvas is 8″x10″.

i applied base coating on the canvas, applying more coats to make the colors richer. lastly, i used markers for the outlines. i got excited that’s why the colors didn’t spread properly. you can see some color blots if you look closely.

i finally finished it after days of procrastination. i hope the new owner will like this.

this is the initial sketch for the matryoshka, i looked for simple patterns to use
