Transforming the Bedroom - Part 5 - Fairies

I have added 5 fairies to my walls.

I started with a stencil by Dressler Stencils, but decided against using it. I just sketched the fairy on paper, then transferred it to the wall with graphite paper and painted it.

I used two sable brushes, #3 and #5/0.

For the fairy body, I used FolkArt Acrylic Skintone #949, FolkArt Buckskin Brown #418, Apple Barrel Burnt Sienna and FolkArt Metallic Peach Pearl #674.

The wings are Folk Art Metallic Plum #668 and FolkArt Metallic Rose Pearl # 673.

Her hair is the Apple Barrel Burnt Sienna. Her little bottom has a blush of the FolkArt Metallic Rose Pearl.

Next, I think I'll be adding a few widow skimmer dragonflies.
