Nesting Doll Drawings




I've drawn lots of Russian dolls, but never a family of nesting dolls. I was thinking it's about time I did. So, here is my first nesting doll family in various black and white variations. Which one do you like best? :)

Those are beautiful. I remeber nesting dolls from my youth, but don't really know the story behind them. Ideas?

your nesting doll family is too cute!!
hard to pick which I like better, I would probably choose the first couple, since I love pastels :-)

Thank you Alyice! Matryoshka (Russian nesting dolls) were born in Russia. I always wanted one as a child. I was so happy to buy a nesting doll for my little girl and now I enjoy drawing them. :)
