Week Four at Summer Of Color

Hellooooo!  It's week four at the Summer of Color 2!  This week's challenge was a delicious Strawberry Lemonade.  I whipped up a quickie Fairy last night for you all.



She's not that great but it was a time crunch, o.k.? Lol!  I did her on the first serviette background I did in this journal and it was extremely bumpy.  Virtually impossible to do such a small face on but I persevered.  I used gesso and a little acrylic for the base and then did did her in my usual prismacolor pencils.  I added an irredescent coat to her wings but of course it didn't photograph.

Next week is some wild and crazy sherbet combo and I'm really looking forward to this one.  I hope I have the time to do it!

Got to run, I'm off to the Oregon coast in search of mermaid evidence!  Stay tuned...

Forever in art,

Jessi
