Garden Faery

I have always imagined faeries must live in the garden. Though we live near the heart of our town, there is something whimsical and lovely about my garden, especially in Springtime, and early summer.
. In the morning when traffic is scarce, the sun slips through the sparkles hung in the trees, creating an illusive beauty which delights my heart.
.
This lovely garden faery was one of the first I imagined stepping shyly through the flowers to say "hello."
.
I used a mixed media of Prismacolor pencils and ink to create this drawing. The lineart takes three-four hours to complete. Adding color to the drawing takes an additional three to six hours.

Hi Beth, I'm loving this painting! As a bloke, I feel at odds admitting it, but I find Fairy pictures so very appealing! When I reach the age of not giving a damn what people think, I'm gonna have a go a drawing some myself, LOL.

Great blog! I like the way you "see".
