Well needed a change and this is a nod to my two friends who do the best watercolors and also an effort to try to get something that is loose.  Yes, I did have something to copy from as this is a pretty intricate piece, but did this on watercolor canvas and it is very different than paper as it absorbs the paint.  I am going to try to do a color pencil piece on this canvas too as I am looking for supports that I could get in a bigger size.  This doesn't appear to be as rough as some of the canvas, but boy does it eat pencils.
I posted this two way, but think I could turn it 4 ways and get 4 different pictures - no just tried it and one is clearly upside down, but get 3 different looks.  Guess that will entertain me for a bit.
Another cold, windy day so good to stay inside and work on fairies. :)
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying a great weekend.

    3. Morning A, always good when I catch a few of your seconds more than once. The color is what grabbed me too. I like the fact that there is not a right side and when turned it takes on a different look. It just cheers me up on a winter's day and brings in a piece of light. I like too how the eye does the mixing.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Hilda and much appreciate your comments. Your guys have to be pretty hardy if they live in a pond in the Northeast. They are beautiful creatures and quite curious and always moving. Will look forward to seeing your next picture of them.
