Lavender Faeries Re-post

Pardon me folks. I've decided to re-post the Lavender Faeries because I noticed that the first scans I put up yesterday were looking rather washed out. So here they are again, looking hopefully, a little better. I also did a couple of very sly tweaks that I'm sure no one but me will notice.


These are the first finished watercolours for the Lavender Blue - Irish Faerie Tale project I'm working on.  Thanks go to Thom for posting some very generous comments yesterday.

More soon.    

Cheers

repost looks the same on my screen as the original did!

Larry, I gotta tell you true. Yesterday I looked at that one faerie and thought the wrist looked a little stocky, but thought, hey this is early, Larry will tweak that. The bands are a nice tweak.

Thanks Tom - definitely going for light and happy.

Thanks Thomas. I also thinned the wrist down with a little white gouache.

Hi Tammie - I took a wee peek at your blog and was quite enchanted by your art and poetry. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much Carrie. All we have to do now is get Shadow Bird to post more often. :)
