I wanted to do some experimenting with paper, pattern and colour for some bigger art works I plan to do, so I thought I'd start with a sketch I've had for a while of a Kokeshi doll in my collection... ok so 3 might not class as a collection but working on it! 
This little doll was a present from my mum and dad, 
So, this was the sketch that I then turned it into acetates for...

first colour, cream,

second colour, Ochre, 

third colour, red,

Fourth colour chocolate! (of course!)
a few details...

ta daa!

finished little Kokeshi doll.
I plan to do more of these, and I've learnt so much from this one and really enjoyed the process today, 
as it ran very smoothly! 
Which is fab! 
I love it when a plan comes together and you have a good day!!
Hope you had one of those days too, where the lights turned green every time on the way home, and there was a parking space with your name on it and you had a pound in your purse for the trolley at the sooopa! 
'Cos I had one of those days too!:)
