Fairy #3

This fairy features a water colour background, acrylic hair and wings, and a face coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  The floral head band is also acrylics.  I used perfect pearls on her wings as well as paint to give them shimmer.   Hope you like her!

Fairy #2

This fairymust be a garden nymph as she has a butterfly as a friend.  I used acrylics for the hair, wings, clothes and background.  The butterfly is a die cut.  Her face and body are coloured with Prismacolor pencils which blend sooooooooo well. She is 9 X12 and painted on bristol paper.

Whimsy Fairy

Good morning!
I wanted to show you my wood nymph in-training. (You can tell by her crooked wings that she has a way to go)
I drew her with pencil and coloured her face with Prismacolor Pencils.  Her hair and wings are painted with acrylics and her headband and dress are Twinkling H2Os. The background is acrylics printed using my Gelli pad.  A real mixed media work.
I am having a bit of trouble blending the coloured pencils but am sure it will get better!
See you soon.

Some Gypsy-Inspired Girls

I am taking a drawing class with Suzi Blu and the theme is gypsies.  This session is strictly drawing - we cannot shade or colour.  Here are some of my drawings.
A young lady

A small girl

A teenager
I have a hard time drawing with NO shading but hope that will come soon!
Thanks for visiting!
