Lavender Sketchbook - Faeries



Some recent pencil work concerning the Faerie Tale I've been working on entitled Lavender Blue and the Faeries of Galtee Wood.  We originally considered using one of the interior illustrations to serve also as the cover, but we have since rethought that idea and have changed our minds. I'm glad we did because this gives me a chance to make a picture that will work exclusively as a cover and be a much stronger image and will be much more successful at conveying the mood and spirit of the book. At the moment I'm simply drawing characters and searching for the figures I want to be in the picture. There will of course be Lavender and there will also be faeries and quite naturally, goblins.

That central picture where she's looking back over her shoulder is really nice. The gesture is perfect.

I want to say something more intelligent than "ooh I love them" but all I can say is that I love them! What a beatiful mess of faeries!
