I have a couple of moleskin journals which I have kept for a very long time but this morning I decided to use it for my doodles using my ever favorite nut brown ink. I was able to make two rough sketches today and I plan to make one sketch a day until I fill in the whole notebook and let's see how many characters I could come up for my Faerie Patch.
This is a continuation of my faerie portrait illustrations. For this piece, I made Bella a cheerful autumn pixie with her toadstool friends and a dormouse before her. I am initially laying the basic yellow and brown hues which will set the tone of fall colors all throughout the painting. There are loads of leaves, berries, twigs that will need my full attention and ofcourse - patience :) Hopefully I could finish this in a week or two...office work messes up my painting sessions...ugh!
