I have lots of ideas for Sprites in this neutral section of my Rainbow Art Journal so at least one more is likely to make an appearance. My first idea, however, was to draw a Wood Sprite so this character is the result.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this illustration. All of the weird and wonky shapes and all of the tiny linework to create the bark was absolutely what I love most about drawing. This is the type of drawing that really relaxes me. As I have mentioned before, one of the unexpected benefits of having worked on this mixed media project over a number of years is that I have really come to understand and appreciate what media, methodologies, and styles are really the core of “me” as an artist. I am pretty confident that I am going to abandon my mixed media dabblings to focus on ink and watercolour once I complete this particular Art Journal project.
