For the first page in the fully green section of my Rainbow Art Journal (as opposed to the transition page) I wanted to work entirely in green (excepting a little black ink). I, therefore, decided to draw one of my sprite figures. I have a fondness for moss so decided my illustration would depict a moss sprite. I also used it as an experiment in layering my green watercolour paints. For the body I used a wet-in-wet technique and as such achieved lots of blossoms and pigment blooms where the different greens puddled and met each other. For the hair, I allowed a layer to completely dry before I added the next layer of paint.
cool! she’s like a basil fairy.
I like that idea since I do love basil. Indeed, I am cooking with it right now.
What beautiful paintwork and I love the partnership of the swirling paint and the finely drawn patterns.
Thank you so much. It has been and continues to be a stressful few months so I think I rather allowed myself to get lost in making all of those leaf patterns. It’s quite meditative.
Love your use of plant pattern in her hair!!! Good job!!
Thank you. It was fun to draw.
