I am wishing I spent a little bit longer on the detailing of this piece. I may try and do a similar piece in the near future.
The premise was the fairy has a broken wing and has used her power to hypnotize the mouse and harness his swiftness .

Drawn on an iPadPro with the iPencil using the Sketchclub app. I felt the need amidst the insanity surrounding the world as of late to have two distinct and separate species living in harmony.
Recently while taking photographs I decided to do eye study. I took many shots of animals and humans alike. One of my daughter’s eye looking out our sliding glass doors to our back garden was by far my favorite.
When an art group I am in posted the challenge of creating eye related drawings I knew that I would try to recreate the photograph. I had an amazing time drawing this one.

Mixed media materials, watercolor pencils & watercolor paints on Bee Heavyweight Vellum.
Someone had mixed my pencils….this was to be a strictly watercolor pencil piece. When I went to blend however, I discovered I was using regular pencils on three portions within the shell! I was mortified. I have never really tried mixed media. As realism was totally lost at this point due to the blunder, I decided to go with the flow and play with the paints a bit. Although it is nothing what I had originally intended it to be, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I might start mixing mediums more often!
Have you ever had a dream and just knew you had to write it down before you forgot it?
This was one of those moments. A merchild with an orca, swimming in space.
I actually had a great deal of fun with this one….despite my memorial reference that quickly faded. I composed as best I could what little flashes of memory provided.
As I sketched, I spent far too much time on the merchild’s hair….I could not match the color from my memory.
