New Barbie Series

February 2, 2010

I have finally begun work on my next set of Barbie portraits. These are all of the same blonde-ponytail Barbie from 1960 or 1961. I’m not a Barbie expert by any means but I know she isn’t the first one from 1959. ( I’m saving her for a later set of portraits). I thought I’d choose one to show in all it’s stages and then post all three when they are finished. There is something so appealing about approaching these in a classical way; building them up from a “grisaille” underpainting. It is so much fun!
