Her Heart Leads Her Home . . . First Fairy Sketch!

And Her Heart Always Leads Her Home . . .
6x8 graphite on paper

I have been doing alot of angel sketching but the other night I wanted to try and sketch a fairy. Here is my first try at it. I did the same style in the face as my angels with eyes closed. I just like it for my whimsy type art. (or I am too lazy to try and sketch the eyes that small! lol )

I love hearts. Many times I will incorporate them into my art. And this one was no exception especially since the words that popped into my head as I was working on her were about the heart! I had fun drawing in her curly hair!

My plan for her is to start a background and collage her on then color her in. Not sure of what colors I want yet but you know I always struggle with color palettes!

I also want to get my first collaged background started for Gritty Jane's class. So stay tuned for that!
