Folk Art Fairy

Another little folk art fairy. She is only 6 1/2 inches. I love doing these because of the primitive type sculpting. They really come to life because of the painting. It is hard to paint something so small. I will get the hang of it before long. I have decided if I can paint a little rose on a tiny button. I can paint a face the size of a quarter. I laugh as I say that, because my eyes are not what they used to be. Every work area I have has a magnifying light. I never had this problem until I turned forty. I did use a liner brush for most of her features, but I think I still need to go to a smaller brush than what I am used to for a little finer detail. Live and learn!
