Something nice to look at now that summer's on its way. I used a ref for the girl (see address below). Many thanks to Marcus Ranum for his gorgeous stock photos. The rest came from my head although I looked at some Bouguereaus just to get a 'feel ' for a classic style of painting. I loved painting this and I think I learned quite a lot along the way. About 16 hours spent using photoshop and wacom.
P.S. Fairies do exist....no really.. they do!!
