    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a baby fairy before!

      This was the first one I came across, and I couldn’t resist painting her.

    Such a beautiful little fairy. I love her tulip dress too. When I was a little girl I used to pick flowers and make a fairy wardrobe and leave them in the garden for the fairies to find.

    Hello, Jill. I came across your little fairy done from the one in my book. Just wanted to say what a lovely job you did. The face is so sweet and you handle watercolor very well.

      Hello, Barbara. Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comments. I have enjoyed working through the tutorials in your book and I’ve learned a great deal from them. I still have much to learn and I will be referencing your tutorials again and again.
