Update on Greg's Queen Anne...

I am so excited about Greg's Queen Anne that he is carving,that I had to show a few more progress pics!He has carved her in the "William&Mary"style,from the 1600's!.I have learned that the queen Anne's from this time period,are actually referred to this way.They had more prominently carved facial features,and their eyes were painted,and not pupil~less.Also,instead of the traditional"dots"over the eyebrows&eyes,these dolls had tiny dashes that look like stitches.They generally had very high foreheads,and beauty marks.

He has even hinged her legs at the knees&peg jointed them.It is amazing to me,that this is all carved from wood! I was amazed when he decided for his first Queen Anne to be one from this time period! I was hoping simply for one of the late 1700's one's,with the simple round head,triangle nose&straight legs! I think he has done a marvelous job!

He has done all Gessoeing(is that a word?*wink*)painting&aging,himself.The only painting I have done,is her facial features.We have decided she needs a very royal looking Red Sheep's Wool for her hair.I have just set it in place,so you can have a general idea,of how she will look with her hair.

He was inspired by a doll in the wonderful book"The Heart of the Tree".She is from the 1680's!
