Another fairy. This one was done in painter 9, using various oil brushes and detail blenders.

Delightful! :clap: :p :clap: Bev's suggestion is a good one...since she's a fairy, perhaps her dress cou˝d sparkle a bit in the sunlight?

Thank you all for you compliments. I took your advice and worked on the dress some. I think it has more of a fantasy feel to it now.

I like the orange dress. Now she stands out. This is a lovely scene.
Nice job on keeping the background less detailed.

The added touch of color on the dress made a real difference! Ties her in with her monarch wings. Lovely flowers!!

Hi Terri. I thought she looked fine the way you painted her first. "Faeries" are suppose to be "un-obvious" and be little "creatures" who hide within the flowers etc. Your flowers are super and she looked fine. Your first take on this works. Just my opinion. :)

I like the detailed work you did on the sunflowers :clap: they are beautiful. I think you did well changing the color of the fairy's dress it makes her the focus of interest :)

they are both beautiful but I still prefer the first dress colour :)

I prefer the second...don't you just love it?? Boils down to what do YOU like?
I would like to know HOW you did all of this, the sunflowers, her wings, face...nice picture.....you could change her dress to blue/purple ROTFL

Seems we have a bit of a debate over the favored version, but that is part of the beauty of digital. I saved both versions. Thanks for the wonderful compliments everyone!! This was a time consuming piece because of the detail and size (23x16 inches), but that is what I really like doing. For the bulk of the painting, I used fine detail oils, laying in lots of color side by side and overlapping in some areas and then I used the fine detail blenders to get my blends. I also did some dodge and burn, And I used some impressionistic brushes on the background. I think that about covers it. I'll try to keep better track of my brushes on the next one (not sure what that will be yet). Again, thanks all! :)
