We got a very charming little lady tonight. She had her hair in blue and with the costume on her, she was really a fairy.
I borrowed a book about fairy art from a local library for reference and did this study sketch. I put a skirt made of leaves for her. She would be sitting on a tree trunk.
For the watercolour, I am thinking to put the blooms as the background.
Half Sheet Watercolour
1. Paint the Skin
Colour: Vermillion(R) + Permanent Orange (R) + Winsor Blue(WN)
Wet the skin and paint, after the 1st layer dry, do the 2nd and third to get the shades down.
The dress is revised to cover the body in the watercolour version.
