A magical portrait of a beautiful Lady….

I love doing special portraits for people, and last month I was asked by a wonderful customer if i would paint a portrait of her as a fairy, with unicorns and surrounded by magical, elvin inspired elements.

                      Of course, I said I’d love to!

Painting portraits do take quite some time, and seeing as we were working to a budget I suggested that we use a photo that she really liked of herself, and I could use that as the basis upon which to paint the fairy and magical theme.

I used photoshop to print her photo portrait onto the Stonehenge watercolour paper I always use to paint on.

Then, I outlined the portrait composition with all the elements she’d like, including special flowers and majestic dragonfly-fairy wings, and filled in a light colour wash.

 

…..I included two flower fairies placing a garland above her head….

 

…..and some little nature spirits (hidden – you need to look closely!)

 

She was thrilled with the end result, and I was absolutely delighted to have captured the essence of this lovely woman whom I have come to know as a friend.

If you would like a magical portrait done, please contact me. I can work around any budget starting from $75 – and can do couples, pets and children as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and have an magical day!
