Faerie Fix

I'm calling this one Faerie Fix because I have just made a few adjustments, or fixes to this little painting. It is a book illustration for Jim Tague's poem Teeney O'Feeney King of the Leprechauns.
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.
