Scarlett the Fairy Princess, Watercolour, 12 x 16 inches

This is a painting I did over the weekend for my niece who just turned 4! I had snapped the reference photo over christmas, sitting her by a window to get nice lighting. Scarlett is a bit camera shy, so her older cousin pulled faces to get her to smile and laugh. I thought, being only four, she might like to be a fairy in the painting so I used a photo of a real butterfly to inspire me with the shape and pattern of the fairy wings I added in. This is the end result, it took about four hours and is 12 x 16 inches in size.
