the painting of cloth dolls

i have started painting the unfinished dolls i have. there are 7 with a dry base color.
i will share the process pictures.
when i start the process i draw the face with water color pencils first making sure the face is in the correct place on the doll head. i see many dolls that the face is to hing on the dolls head.the top of the eye is about even with the top of the ear.then i outline with the oil paint. using a shade brush i blend the color in.then put in the eye color and detail. less is best---- this is what works for me.
