Autumn Fairy

The latest colour at The Summer of Colour is brown.
Hmm, this caused me a problem as usually I will only use it as a accent not at the main colour.
I thought of Autumn and  with a dash of green, (you may recall I like green) Nissa was born.




Nissa is a woodland sprite.  She has gathered some flowers and is off to meet Aubrey the Elf ruler.  (Family joke - sorry, couldn't resist)

I quite like her but I tried out some new paper to draw on.  Wish I had had the time to draw and colour her again as I wasn't too keen on the way the paper reacted.   Still I learnt something new.  Brown is not such a bad colour after all ;0)

Pop along to The Summer of Colour to see some great art.

Hugs Alis

Quite right - brown is pretty cool! I was hoping you'd do another fairy this week. They are so cute!

I'm in full agreement - love 'em all - everyone of them is my favourite! You did a great job Alis with 'brown'. Such lovely warm colours you've used.

Awe, SO pretty! I love her angle too - she is so delicate and your details are just beautiful. Sweet mouth, FAB eyes and that pop of color is a perfect compliment. Thank you for sharing, xo

What a pretty fairy--her eyes are gorgeous and she has a curious yet contemplative expression. I love the leafy background, too. :)
