wood girl original design sketch - 'little bear'
Most of my wood girl designs start out in my sketchbook - the head is drawn above a flattened out version of the body for me to plan each design. This is an original loose leaf version of one of those sketches, first drawn in pencil and then hand painted with the colour and pattern ideas which go into the creation of the dolls themselves. Notes have been added in pencil about the design and intended colours, and the hand carved stamp which is used on the base of the wood girls has been applied over the artist signature.
This sketch is for the little bear constellation wood girl, who I first made in 2020. There is some silver foiling applied for the constellation stars, as on the real doll.
A special original piece, these will be listed as and when available - sometimes separately and on occasion with a wood girl as a special set.
Hand drawn onto Awagami 170g Bamboo paper.
Paper size: A4 (210 × 297 mm or 8.27 × 11.69 inches).
Signed in pencil and stamped with nakamura characters [中村] in red ink.
