In this tutorial I will show you how to paint a super cute autumnal fairy using watercolor pencils.
MATERIALS: watercolor pencils, pencil, eraser, watercolor paper, brushes, water, white gel pen.
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE THE COMPLETE DRAWING / PAINTING PROCESS :)
Step 1: Sketch
First we start with a rough sketch of the scene (FIGURE 1).
Once we have done with the sketch, we start adding details of the fairy, the snail, and the mushroom.
Step 2: Coloring the Fairy
I have chosen autumnal colors for the fairy: orange, red, yellow, brown and light green.
I started painting from the hat and I gradually went down to the shoes ( to not smudge the paint).
I first colored as normal pencils and then I applied water with the brush over it.
Please clean your brush every time you change color!
Step 3: Mushroom + Snail
I continued painting the snail and the mushroom using the same technique as before.
I retraced few lines with purple pencil to increase the contrast.
Step 4: White Details
Once the painting dried, I retraced few line with white gel pen.
White pen is very useful to highlight small details.
Step 5: End!
