Russian doll

On friday I got a strange request, to paint anything of my choosing on a russian doll.
The doll itself was just plain wood and it can pop open so that the other smaller dolls can fit inside, well this was going to be a interesting surface to paint on, not only is it small but the entire surface is curved, but I figured hey if the russians can do it then so can I.
So I basically using a pencil drew my design on the wooden surface and then set about painting it using Winsor and Newton Acrylic paint, really great paint to work with, although it is acrylics so they dry fast.
So here are the results of my attempt on a russian doll……enjoy
PS. I also included a picture of what they normal russian dolls look like.
