I thought I was finished with this picture and the project completed when it was decided that we would add one more illustration to the book. Adding more art is always fine with me and since the new picture was going to involve faeries I felt like I wanted to go back to this one and make a few corrections before starting the new picture. I made some adjustments to her wings and brightened up the colour in a couple of places and gave her a bit more hair. The changes are subtle but now she looks a bit closer to what I have in mind for the faeries in the new picture and they will all look like they come from the clan. It's watercolour of course, as usual, with some gouache over painting.

Some recent rough work for a personal piece I am planning for the spring. I'm still figuring out how it's all going to fit together. I know that I want to have the girl posed in front of the tree but I need to have something in the background that will help tell a story. Is she hiding ? Is she waiting ?
I need to have something back there. At first I was considering a dragon but I think that might be too much. I don't think this is going to be that kind of picture. I want this one to be more about the environment she's in. Maybe a flock of crows. Something has startled them - maybe - don't know yet - still thinking. More drawing required.
