Daisy Chain Fairy

Daisy Chain Fairy

This little daisy chain fairy is a bit of a departure for me since I typically work with cool colors. I had to adjust the colors several times before I was satisfied with my color choices. I may rework her in pink tones instead of orange, but for now I’m calling her done. This painting is based on a tutorial in Linda Ravenscroft’s book, “How to Draw and Paint Fairies.”

      Thanks, Shree. I may take new photos of her in the daylight to see if I can get a better pic. I took the shot late at night in low light.

      Thanks, Elena. Initially she was peach and green but the painting looked flat to me so I bumped up the intensity of the colors.
