House Elves in Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

For the last few days I have been working on these two pages in my fairy journal. I put gold and silver paint on the collar of the girl’s cape, but in the picture it looks a little bit coppery in color.

This was a lot of fun. I also loved painting all the bugs and the little fairy at the top showing off her skirt. I love this workshop, because I am learning more about technique and not feeling like I have to draw and paint the exact thing as the instructor is doing. I have a few more paintings to do of fairies and elves from this workshop. And I want to take my time.

I am really enjoying this project even more than the portraiture class. I tend to get bored when I don’t have enough variety in what I am doing. So when I begin feeling this way, I have to change gears for awhile.

I am glad I know this about myself and can accept it. I spent too many years of my life getting down on myself for feeling bored and not finishing things that didn’t hold my interest over long periods of time. I figured it would happen with the portraiture class at about the halfway point. But that’s okay. As long as I get all the videos downloaded on my laptop, I can take as long as I need to complete it. That is the main thing that attracts me to this type of online class. I never let myself feel rushed or like I have to keep up with everyone else. It is very freeing!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. These fairies and elves sure have odd characteristics, but that’s what makes them interesting and fun to look at, and I’m sure they are fun for you to draw and paint.
