Four Frolicking Fairies

This was a fast piece (under an hour) done with a loose pen drawing and then gouache. I tried a couple of detailed fairy drawings but they are elusive little creatures. So, this was a last ditch effort to participate. As w/all improv, there's quite a bit of risk involved.

Lovely piece. I love the cool palette. I think gouache is fun to work with. Good job.

You did that in an hour? That's great! I love how free it is.

I like the loose feel of it and how you painted the fairies. (I agree with you - they are elusive little creatures.) It's very fun and really looks like it could be a fairy world.

So funny! Great illustration--nice & soft & mysterious. A lot going on without the close up of those illusive fairies!
