Leaf-riding Fairy painting

A commissioned piece for a little girl’s new bedroom.

About 20 inches high, acrylic on canvas.

I don’t typically paint fairies, but that was the request.  This is my first attempt of the two.

Concept sketch.


Background.  Tree branches were painted mostly on one side to indicate wind/movement.


Leaf rider.  No wings yet.


Added wings, wind, and airy detritus.


Additional leaves to balance space and show more action.
