Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You also could see some of my work on Instagram, @helldg123. Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Helen

Angel Challenge


This Challenge is closed and voted and therefore I can post some pictures. The doll was created from Sherry Goshon pattern that was provided and it was ideal canvas for me to paint, so, I just couldn't hold it and I had to paint her. This doll was stubborn and rejected any fabric I had to make her a skirt or look more finish, may be later I can talk her into...we'll see.
You can see all dolls at Angel Challenge
The doll was painted using acrylic and watercolors paints mixed with textile medium, face features were painted using mostly watercolors pencils and then I went over with slightly wet brush over the pencil strokes for better blending.
