  • Fairy House

    When i was little, i used to love to draw and would spend i great deal of time sketching and copying paintings.


    As i grew up i seemed to stop somehow

    On my recent trip home, my mum suggested i go down to the library as she was sure she saw some books on drawing fairies. Where on earth she got the idea i wanted to draw fairies from i have no idea as i have never drawn them before or even expressed an interest. Anyway i decided to wander down anyway in search of craft books. Sure enough there were books on drawing aforementioned fairies and one in particular was such a pretty book that i couldn't help but take it home.


    The book was one by Linda Ravenscroft and i so loved looking at her pictures and her instructions were so easy to follow that before i knew it i found myself sketching an image similar to the one in her book.

    I had so much fun with it that it has reignited my love of drawing and yesterday went and bought another of her books from Waterstones!! I can't wait to get started!!


    Anyhoo, here is the piccie i drew at home, hardly Van Gough (and it does look better on the canvas but a start never the less lol!!

    Hi Jo... love your drawing, it's fab!!

    I love drawing too, though I go through phases where I don't do much but I find it can help me to express how I'm feeling more than anything else.

    Can't wait to see more of your work

          Thanks Diane

          The book i bought is on drawing the fairies themselves and the book at home was more about drawing the surroundings

          I meant to have a go yesterday but was too tired!!
