So back to the Cornish Pixie Elves, I decided to get prepared for Halloween and have two new Halloween pixies this year. I grabbed my sketchbook for some inspiration and decided on painting a gravestone and a witches hat on the bodies of two small elves.
Next I got out a couple of bigger elves and I had always wanted to paint a dragonfly elf, I used some new pink paint for the body and some of my metallic acrylic ink.
The next elf was something else I have wanted to paint for a while was a peacock, I had sketched a stylised version in my sketchbook and I decided to go from that one rather than something more complicated.
Again I used some new pink paint and the acrylic inks, which sadly don't photograph so well but they do look fabulous and shimmery.
It will soon be the school holidays and hopefully I shall get creating on a couple more witches and maybe a mermaid and then I will be planning some christmas Pixie elves and dolls. But first I will be busy with a show on the LBA Limelight Facebook Group which starts Wednesday 13th July at 2 pm British Summer Time for 48 hours. And the Dragonfly and Peacock Pixie ELves will be joining inon the fun.
Until next time
