This little fairy was inspired by a sketchbook drawing I did the week before last.
Yesterday all I did was work on the background. I had an idea of what I wanted, I worked at it, and worked at it, but by the end of the day it was crap. I really didn’t want to have to scrap all of the work I had already put into the pencils. Since I had used liquid mask to cover the figure, I thought… Gesso! I guess it was the perfect opportunity to try something I hadn’t done before… and I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out. Yay for happy mistakes. =) After this little experiment you can bet I'll be doing more of this.
