One of the fairies from the series of paintings 'The fairy dance'. This is a pen sketch of one of the fairies in my new painting. I will post the finished painting on my blog when I have finished. Although it's not based on anything from literature, I found the poem below, by Carolina Eliza Scott, and felt inspired by this verse:
The fairies are dancing — how nimbly they bound!
They flit o'er the grass tops, they touch not the ground;
Their kirtles of green are with diamonds bedight,
All glittering and sparkling beneath the moonlight.
by Carolina Eliza Scott
