Winter Fairy

I just finished painting a winter fairy.  I'm happy with her sparkle and I'm happy that I learned how to draw these wings.  I used this art

by Anne Stokes as my model, so that I could get the body position down.  I wanted my fairy to be in a wonder winter land scene.  I am still hoping that we get some snow before Christmas.  I will show you some pictures of my process and each layer.

My beginning sketch on Strathmore mixed media paper

This layer is Derwent Inktense Pencils
This layer is Prismacolor Pencils
This layer is oil pastels

This layer is the first layer with acrylic paint

This is the final layer with more acrylic paint and glitter

I hope that my fairy makes you happy today.
