A friend let me borrow a book that was well-loved by her children, here is one of the illustrations:
It is very old. It is called, “A Day In Fairyland,” illustrated by Ana Mae Segren and written by Sigrid Rahmas. It was printed in Sweden.
Last year I took a drawing and painting fairy class from Val Webb and painted this fairy in gouache:
Her name is Ivy as she is peering out from the ivy! I enjoyed painting her eyes especially.
This year, I took another painting class from Val Webb and painted this unicorn:
It is also using gouache. I love the sky!
I enjoy painting the magical world of fairies and unicorns. It is fun to use my imagination!
Happy Creating! 🙂
A friend of mine suggested this word for a blog post.
Since I have been learning to draw horses, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use this word.
I have been sketching horses for over a week to get to this drawing. I’m taking a drawing and painting class from Val Webb.
I added a horn to make it a unicorn:
This would be a great place to interject the word, “horsefeathers!” It means: rubbish; nonsense; bunk (used to express contemptuous rejection). It comes from 1925-30, Americanism; horse + feathers, as euphemism for horseshit
I know you are wondering about the feathers part…
So I colored one of my Zentangle feathers from the other day.
And photographed it on one of my recent gelli-prints.
Here is another photo from a different angle and background:
It is interesting how the colors of the feather changes depending on the background.
Sometimes we need a little nonsense in our life! HAPPY Friday!
