Scotswoman Matryoshka

Scotswoman Matryoshka Rough Pencil Sketch

Hello friends! I have just completed my Scotswoman Matryoshka. Another redhead! I am a redhead by choice and Scot on my father's side (my maiden name is Stuart). With this Scotswoman Matryoshka I departed from my normal symmetrical style, as I've only done a couple of other times with my Italian Girl and Queen Elizabeth I. Sometimes I like to experiment with a more natural pose. I hope you like her! :)

Here are the two redheads I've drawn so far.

And because I forgot to show you this in my last post, here is my preliminary pencil sketch for my Swiss Girl Matryoshka.

And another grouping suggestion, my Swiss and Finnish Matryoshkas.

Okay I'm trying to send this again, it gave me an error message last time.

She's lovely! And this is so fitting because I was at a Scottish Festival today! :)

I've got a couple to add to your list.

and I know you have a Hungarian matryoshka, but I would love to see my favorite Hungarian folk costume, found in Kalotaszeg in Transylvania. Picture here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24506054@N04/3295607992/sizes/l/in/photostream/

Wow! That fiery red hair is so eye-catching. And I am completely fascinated by the sketches too. How neat to get a peak into your creative process!
