2018 Fairy

Day 327 – 2018 Fairy

To celebrate the start of 2018, I painted “2018” in various shades of watercolour paints before layering it up with coloured pens and colouring pencils.

I then drew a silhouette of a fairy on the reverse and cut it out using my craft knife and placed the reverse silhouette on the cutting mat.

Dispersed Ink Fairy

Day 295 – Dispersed Ink Fairy

This is a bit experimental!

I drew today’s fairy in pencil on a piece of paper before using some felt tip pens on a plastic surface; spraying the ink with water and rubbing the wet inked plastic surface onto the pencil drawing. I drew over the pencil drawing in fineliner.

I quite like the effect of the ink dispersed on the page.

Pencil Shaving Fairy

Day 253 – Pencil Shaving Fairy

For today’s fairy I drew an outline in pencil on some cartridge paper. Then I drew over the outline in glue before pouring some pencil shavings from my pencil sharpener onto the glue. I shook off the excess shavings.

As you can see, some of the coloured lead dust from inside the pencil sharpener stuck to the outline more than the shavings…

Tissue Art Fairy

Day 204 – Tissue Art Fairy

This is in the style of another tissue paper “painting” that I saw.

I drew the fairy in pencil on some white paper, painted each section loosely with watercolours before drawing the details in black fineliner when it had dried. I then proceeded to stick on torn shapes of tissue paper (in corresponding colours) to the background, her wings and clothing.
