Month Of Fairies art challenge - Week 3

For the entire month of November I’m drawing a fairy a day and posting it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #MonthOfFairies

If you haven’t seen the rest of the series, here are other related posts:

Here’s an overview of all the artwork I created in the third week of the project, from November 17th ’till November 23rd.

Day 17

Month Of Fairies Day 17

I had no idea what to draw, so I quickly drew a modern, alternative fairy. When I finished it, I realized it looked like a mix of Delirium from “The Sandman” and Megan Massacre.
Ballpoint pen & watercolor in a Handbook journal.

Day 18

Month Of Fairies Day 18: Forest spirit

I wanted to create something loose and dreamy, so I created this small watercolor experiment of a forest spirit.

Day 19

Month Of Fairies Day 19

Paper-cutting and watercolor in a Handbook journal.

I’ve only tried paper-cutting once before, and it’s way more difficult than I thought it was. In reality this work has several tears, but I removed them from the image in Photoshop. I wonder what kind of paper paper-cut artists use that doesn’t tear as much?

Day 20

Month Of Fairies Day 20: The Fairy of Velebit

There’s this cheesy Croatian patriotic song from the 19th century, a hymn to the fairy of the majestic mountain (you can read the lyrics here). I have no idea from which myth it stemmed.
My boyfriend kept asking me jokingly when I was going to draw her. So here it is

Day 21

Month Of Fairies Day 21

My friend Marija commented on this image “Fiery, windy, warm… just like a perfect autumn should be.”
Unfortunately, that’s not the autumn we had this year but in my imagination I can make it any way I want.

Day 22

Month Of Fairies Day 22

Gouache on a vine leaf.
I couldn’t find a single leaf that was dry and flat (because it’s been raining forever), so I used what I had in my yard. I think this is the first time in my life that I painted over a natural object.

Day 23

Month Of Fairies Day 23

Quick watercolor sketch of a water nymph.


That was it for week 3!
