I painted this earlier this year with the intention of submitting it to a gallery but the virus has put that on hold for the time being. I really like how the colours turned out on this one, I only used watercolour instead of using my usual mix of watercolour and gouache.
I started drawing this last year, after becoming inspired by the wisteria growing in my aunt’s garden. I just imagined fairies flying though around it.
I originally envisioned the woman to be a fairy queen, but she didn’t really turn out to fae like in the end so I’ll leave it up to the viewer to decide.
Based on the Russian fairy tale, this is another coloured version of an inktober drawing from last year. I finished this a while ago now but have just forgotten to post it until now.
I hope everyone is stay safe during this stressful time. I’m a key worker at the moment so I’m not producing as much art as I’d like to but I’ve got a few things I finished before the pandemic which I’ll be sure too share.
I’ve been digitally colouring some of my inktober drawings from last year using Procreate. I actually finished this cinderella one last year but have made a few small changes, mainly to the background and carriage. The colour palette for this was inspired by the Walt Disney animated film.
I’m really enjoying using Procreate to paint I would love to do it more and properly explore different techniques and styles.

This was actually the last of the characters I worked on but I’ve decided to post them In book order.
One thing I’m finding difficult when working digitally is knowing when to stop. I feel like I could keep working on and altering an image forever.
