Trapped! Faery Under Glass.

Here's the finished pencil drawing of my Sketchfest sketch 'Faery Under Glass', which I recently completed for a client. It's now whizzing its way to USA.

Presenting Sketchfest Twenty!

Another weekend over and another sketch fest over too... for those who don't know, it's a '24 hour creative jam session with artists across the world'.  I did eight sketches this time.  There were so many excellent prompts that I just didn't know which ones to choose and so it sent me into a flap, hehe.  For those who love sketching and would like to learn about sketch fest, please click on the link to read all about it.  It is so much fun and I always look forward to 'sketchfest weekend'.  Hope you had a good weekend too?  Presenting my sketches:

Fairy Under Glass 

This is a little faery who was caught nibbling left over food on the dinner table.  She was so engrossed in munching, she didn't see the wine glass put over her until it was too late. I didn't have time to draw the food, but I'd like to :)


Hedgehog's Tea Party

A bit of whimsical fun ;) I hope the hedgehog, with the tray with the teapot, doesn't trip up on the long grass!


The Ice Queen

I had trouble with her hand in this pose. The queen sitting on her throne of ice :)


A Knight and his Steed

As I love faeries, I thought I would do a faerie knight on his steed, a mighty mouse. Not happy with this sketch though. I think the perspective is wrong and I would love to rub bits out and start again but ran out of time.


Sleeping Birds

It didn't quite turn out as I wanted and it still needs work but here is a faery whose task it is to baby sit the young birds :)



Winter Angel

This angel is helping to keep warm the poor animals in Winter :)


The Polar Bear Express

I didn't get chance to finish this but I enjoyed drawing it immensely. The train is probably not technically correct, but how many polar bears have you seen driving steam trains? I would like to finish the carriage on the back of the steam train :)


The Snow Faery

She's making wintry snowflakes. Not very well drawn snowflakes, but I was sketching them quickly ;)
