Portrait of a lady

I splurged on a travelling watercolour paint set recently. A proper grown up one. It came complete with twenty sheets of lovely thick cotton paper.
Elsa and I have had a little fun painting the portrait of her much loved doll Pippy. She's a bit of tomboy and a bit grubby round the edges but she was a delightful model. Most ladylike and didn't move a muscle.
Her portrait now sits on the piano next to other cherished family snaps, immortalised as a sweet family keepsake.

  2. Gorgeous! I love the Pippy's knitted pants. My mum used to knit clothes like that for our dolls.
