Fairy Queen Original Painting Work in Progress...



Here is a work in progress image of my fairy queen.  I'm a bit farther along then I am in this scan, but I still have a ways to go on her.  In addition to the obvious portions that still need paint, she's going to have an antler crown, I'm not sure how that will work out.  If I like it, this small 5"x7" painting may be a study for a larger piece.

I was trying to work on her yesterday during the afternoon, but the heat made the paints extremely uncooperative.  I love acrylics for so many reasons, one of them is that I'm allergic to oils, but they dry so very quickly.  Which is normally another reason that I like them, but when it's as hot as it was yesterday, I couldn't work quickly enough before the paints would dry...

I started her for Nibblefest, but didn't finish her on time to list as a seven day auction.  I'm hoping to try to post her tomorrow as a five day auction.  I haven't done much experimenting with shorter auction durations so we'll see.  Nibblefest auctions start at 99c, no reserve!  

I haven't forgotten about the mermaid, hopefully I should have more done on her by next week...
