A fairy a day

…Or, at least, a fairy as often as possible! I’ll post them here, for you to enjoy, as they come to life on my drawing table. All artwork (c)2015 Val Webb, and may not be used without permission.

    Just a quick question: In regards to the paper are you using, is it a hot or cold press water color paper? The images when scanned in look wonderful.

    • This week, I have been using whatever paper I had on hand. The first fairy is actually painted on a page torn from a generic spiral-bound watercolor pad; the third and fourth are on 140-pound cold pressed Canson watercolor paper; and the second is on thin bond paper (you can see where it buckled a bit near the baby fairy’s shoulders. I am planning a trip to the art supply store this weekend for some nicer stock! Thank you for your kind words. I’m having a wonderful time drawing the daily fairies, and watching to see where they will lead.🙂

  5. These are very sweet! It looks like you’ll have a lot of fun and refreshment painting this series.

    Val, I would so love to draw fairies with you! Do you have such a class? Also where are you in fair hope so I can drop off your color book??? I love drawing children with wings!

    So happy I found your blog … I have to bless technology and the internet … they sometimes work as angels, because they bring me good “food” for the heart and soul (and eyes) … thank you directly from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  11. These drawings are delightful. Very inspiring. When I was a child, I was very much taken in by the world of the brownies. Thanks for the reminder!
