Work In Progress Part IV

I'm going to make these last two updates both today and mooove on. Really this pic just shows more work on the fairy wings and the fairy's body...not exactly earth shattering is it?? What it does show, is the layering effect I like to use and the build up of colour.
With watercolours there's no "do over". Their transparency is very unforgiving. Sometimes I find you have to surrender to the paint and what it wants to do..not easy for me at all!
On the other hand I think watercolours are the perfect medium for fairies and the land of whimsy. The transparency lends itself to the subject. like I said moving on..the next picture will be the finished piece and I'll put it up later today.
