Baby Fairy in Watercolor

Purple Baby Fairy in Watercolor2 Small

I painted this baby fairy during our last mother-daughter painting session. She was a quick study on darker skin tones . I’m particularly pleased with her curly hair, which I painted with quick strokes and in a much looser style than I normally paint. This painting is based on a tutorial in Barbara Lanza’s book, “Enchanting Fairies: How to Paint Charming Fairies and Flowers.”

    Yes. The sense comes across that you are growing ever more comfortable in your painting. There’s an increased immediacy which is most delightfully on display in those pretty curls!
