I needed a quick unwind so I made this beautiful little fairy in my 5.5″ x 8″ Strathmore Watercolor Art Journal. I started with a light pencil sketch that I painted with watercolor pencils and a Niji water brush. Once the paint was dry, I added highlights with a white Posca Pen. I used a sketch pencil for shading and softened it a bit with a blending stomp.
I wanted to add a little bling, so I gave her a crown of jewels that I accented with Stardust Stickles. Last I outlined my fairy with Sakura Micron Pens #01 and #005.
I painted the background with a very light wash of the same colors I used for the fairy. But it still needed more, so I added a blue aura around her. And Voila! I had a lovely little love fairy in my journal!
Hope this inspires you!
