Past Her Prime, A Real Old Doll
"Past Her Prime: A Real Old Doll," 12x16 Acrylic
This was a fun one! I was inspired by a contest on EBSQart.com to paint a doll. I searched the internet and found a free reference photo on morguefile.com
The hair was done with heavy body white structural acrylic paint impasto style and the cracks in her arms and face were done with Crackle Medium. I used an old 12x16 canvas board that I had painted on before, so it had lots of texture. I added more brush strokes with heavy acrylic and then painted the doll on top of that. It gave the whole thing lots of texture.
