Autumn Whispers Fairy


I was so happy to see Tamara Laporte's tutorial the first day of Life Book 2024 - Taster Sessions was Autumn Whispers.

I painted this lovely fairy with Jane Davenport watercolors on 140 lb. Fabriano hot press watercolor paper. I used Liquitex Acrylic Ink in her hair bringing out the red in it! The heavy black black in her hair and around her face is the Stabilo All pencil. I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White for highlights and a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen for a bit of detail.

I also learned to print the leaves from my tree with watercolors. I used them over the watercolors on her top and in the background.

I learned a lot as I always do when I paint a tutorial from Tamara Laporte.
