Croatian Girl Matryoshka

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have a fun and safe New Year's Eve and Day. Speaking of "New" I have a new drawing to show you! My Croatian Girl Matryoshka. I've had two kind requests for a Croatian Matryoshka and one was even so kind as to send me a link to what she had in mind— a Croatian Folk Dancer! This was really allot of fun. Something about red and white I just love, maybe it is the valentine connection. I hope she surpasses their expectations and I hope you love her too! :)

The patterning on her dress, and the pleats, are outstanding.

If I may say so, your work always seems to out-do itself. :-)

The red!!! It came out so lovely. I think you're right, there is something especially attractive about red and white together. It always seems really festive, but clean and simple at the same time. Kinda like a peppermint. ;-)

Amy Perrotti said...

Thank you Holly! Yes, like a peppermint candy! :)

So pretty. And I have to say that your blog banner is just perfect, Amy! (maybe sell that image as a 'landscape'? It's so lovely to see all the girls together .... X Lynn-Anne ps hope the snow is pretty in your corner of nc!

Amy Perrotti said...

Thank you Lynn-Anne! We didn't get as much snow as you, but it is still pretty. Thank you for the suggestion. I am offering bookmarks similar to the banner. :)
