Artwork Description

I was experimenting on a very rough paper when I painted her and it felt like my brush got stuck on every stroke. Yet I kind of like the fragility that came out of the struggle with the surface. The topic is quite conventional, just a little blue fairy inventing a new potion a parfume perhaps. I attempted to make it look like she melts into the background here and there just to emphasize her fragility.

I agree with the other commentor; you've captured the fraility wonderfully. I adore the textures and, indeed, the strokes of this piece...

I'm not exactly a resident artist with a great deal of knowledge on this subject, but i must say that your attempt to emphasize and highlight the fragility of the fairy is successful. at first glance, she seemed almost as though she's vanishing from the surface of the earth. As though there is nothing to hold her back, like one touch and she would disappear. yet at the same time, she seemed to be glowing, as tho' she has an aura around her..

Art at its best.
