My life size Marie's painted on canvas, attached to board. The skirt bends to make a stand. There is a center board for the whole figure and side pieces of the skirt that fold forward to back. These are supported by the canvas the figure is painted on.
Marie, out by the back gate, finished
close up, showing jewelry, copies of her actual blue diamond ring, pearls and diamond earrings.
rose and hand detail
more detail, skirt, etc. There still is a lot to be done...her hands, lace, finish the rose, etc. even her face isn't finished. The big change is that she is completely free standing...such fun!
Starting of my "Very Marie" Companion board.
Painted on canvas.
Taking advantage of using my dolly for a prop to show the size of the figure. This companion board will be made with a folding base like a fireplace screen so she will stand up alone.
Another picture of my doll and a chair that I painted. I just used regular paints to paint roses on the chair and added a bit of gold to the edges. They were already gold but worn.
