Today was a cold and gloomy (and SNOWY) day so I decided to paint something bright warm instead. It didn’t go the direction I had originally intended but I’m pleased with how it came out. I spend the bulk of my time on the background, several layers of red to make it appear more solid – most of the backgrounds on my other paintings are relatively faded, most of that is intentional.
She’s a compassionate fairy, and wants no more than to set things free and keep them safe – where they can thrive and live and be. She works hard and gives her all even when the odds seem impossible. (Acrylic 16×20)
