I have included a before and after of a nesting doll set I have done recently.  First I sketch out a bunch of ideas in my sketch book, then I select which ones I like best.  Next I start out drawing in pencil the design I want on the doll.  Now I am ready to paint!  After the paint is dry, I outline and add details with a black marker.  The final stage is adding 3 or 4 coats of varnish to give the doll a protective glossy finish.
