Meadow Fae Dancing Butterflies by DragonTreasureArt Meadow Fae Dancing Butterflies by DragonTreasureArt
Full Title: Meadow Faery and the Dancing Butterflies

I enjoyed painting this. there are areas I am frustrated by as I know I've made mistakes, but it's all a learning curve. Everytime I use watercolours I find out something I will or won't ever do again!

Hello pixie-queen!
This is totally great work! When I saw it it gave me that filling that my chests get opened like a big wooden door and that I just get out of myself!
Big fav!

The butterflies all look slightly different and break up all the different greens in the painting.

I love the coloring of this picture, it's almost like she's apart of the breeze itself. And the butterflies are a nice touch to it. :D

Yes we were like - "it's in Horsham, Surrey - 5 minutes away" looked at the map and like "Whoa, where the heck is Sussex!!"

Sorry though, I'll chalk it up to another piss poor attendance record for Matt meeting up with Matt and Ella et al!

I love the colors and movement in this piece. I like how she seems to becoming as one with nature - transforming into the earth elements.

What trips me up a bit is that the butterflies are all "flat", so they look more like ornaments than animals that are actually in the setting.

Apart from that the image is lovely, I particularly like the design of the fae. It looks a bit like she's part plant. :heart:

Cheers, yeah she's sort of meant to be morphing out of the undergrowth.
I know what you mean about the butterflies looking flat, it's a fair point.... Guess I just have to keep practising until i get it right :-)
