I have finished the Cider Apple Fairies with two days to go, in time to get them into the Somerset Arts Weeks brochure. So that’s me signed up for Arts Weeks (17 September to 2 October 2016), and one more Alternative Flower Fairies picture ticked off. And a decision: next year there shall be a Flower Fairies calendar! I now have 10 Alternative Flower Fairies paintings, just two more needed. I shall also be doing another swimming calendar as this year’s was delightfully popular.
So, pictures of the Cider Apple Fairies – after a long line of Poison Flower Fairies I’m worried that these characters are a bit too nice, but really, Cider Apple Fairies would be fairly happy with the world. This is another painting that is coloured pencil over gouache, like the Ditch Dragons.
