Learning new techniques: Lilac, the Glowing Fairy, watercolor

 

Lilac, the glowing fairy

Lilac, the glowing fairy

I used my first earnings as an illustrator to buy three illustrated books: one of them is about fairy and fantasy painting using watercolors. I’ve been using watercolors for several years, and I bought it to emprove my skills. The book has many interesting tutorials, but I don’t like copying other artist’s works: I prefer creating my own subjects, that’s why I am applying new techniques described in that book to my original drawings. This is the result of my first attempt with one of these techniques: quite unhappily, I forgot to take photos of the making process (as I usually do), that’s why I can only show you the final picture: for the next one, I promise I’ll remember to take a photo of each step. The picture I’ve called “Lilac, the Glowing Fairy”: it is about 16 x 23 cm, and I used only a few colors: two or three different kinds of yellow, violet and blue for the sparkling lights. Fab

  1. this is quite good. Have you ever thought about doing other mythical creatures, like fauns?

      I’ve depicted goblings and elves, dragons and trolls, but never a faun… it could be interesting 🙂

      • Because I have faeries and fauns in my book I am always on the look out to see how illustrators draw them, because I like to see how others see faeries and fauns.

  3. Please let me know when you have drawn one. Or maybe I’ll see it on my feed since I am following you now.
