Baby Mushroom Fairy

Watercolor painting of a baby fairy resting on a mushroom

I haven’t posted a painting in a while because I’ve been so busy with home maintenance and repair projects. I had an hour to spare this evening so I kept this painting sweet and simple.  This painting is based on tutorials in Linda Ravenscroft’s books, “How to Draw and Paint Fairyland” and “How to Draw and Paint Fairies.”

    Hi Jill. If you are exploring fairy illustration, you could find interesting the Hanneke’s blog http://hannekekoop.wordpress.com/ (maybe you already know about it). She posts very nice drawings, too.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hooray – more paintings! So adorable! I’m on a “People of the Forest” kick myself so I just love to see what critters other folks come up with.
