Fairy Wishes

Hello you guys!!  I'm back with a new canvas and this one is big.  I'm going whimsical on this piece, I'm calling it Fairy Wishes:

This is canvas is 16x20 and 1.5" deep.  I started just like I always do, you know with absolutely no idea of what I'm gonna create, lol.  I just picked a couple of colors that I love and started painting.

With the base colors down, I started adding these flowing vines.  I really enjoy the fluid motion of creating curves so I always add them in somewhere.  At this point I walked away for a little while til a burst of inspiration hit me.

I found a photo of girl with beautiful purple hair that inspired me to create this fairy.

I spent a lot time tweaking her, I'm self taught so I just do the best I can and learn as I go.

I started adding circles and when I added some highlights they transformed into bubble so I just went with it, lol.

I used book text, acrylic paints, gouache, spray ink, stencils, markers and stamps to create all of my layers.

The edges are painted in a muted teal.  That's it for today friends, THANK YOU so much stopping by and spending a little part of your day with me!!

May you touch Dragonflies and Stars, 
Dance with Fairies and touch the Moon

Have a magical day!!
