Day 154: Fairy Fun, a Bit More Fiddling

Tortoise & Fairy (Watercolour)

Today I felt I ought to revisit the project that started all the experimentation of the past week or so. So I sat for a few hours and put in some more details.

I had great fun bringing the tortoise to life and love the looseness of the flowers, I’m quite enjoying the illustrative style that is appearing. However I’m not sure this one will go much further as I can’t think of a way to make the face work – unfortunately due to my poor drawing skills on the day her head is just too large and it bugs me every time I look at it.

As it happens, I won’t be able to continue on this for a couple of days anyway due to work commitments so it’s a great time to step back and do something else for a couple of days. Then I’ll see it with fresh eyes at the weekend and maybe work out what can be done.
