I finished these paintings a while back - months ago actually! they've been sat framed up just waiting for me to get round to photographing them!
I wanted to do some anatomical paintings on a flat surface so I decided to take the Art Attack approach to ageing paper [good old coffee!] then proceeded to draw in the bones of the hands and paint them up in the same way I paint the dolls... I wanted to subtly play on the idea of using dolls, so I added in the pink nails as a little Barbie homage :)
