I decided to combine my fondness for celestial art, fairies and masks into one picture. This was made with ink and watercolor. The size is 7 X 12 inches.

Oh this is just gorgeous! Which parts did you use water colour for? Working with water colours myself, and always like to see techniques used by other artists. ^_^

I love the expression on the moon's face, heheh... The background is also lovely!

:-) Christy Babrick replies: "Thanks. 2 This picture was colored mostly with watercolors. I used ink and some white acrylic paint for the stars, but other than that, it's all watercolor."

This picture like all you work is stunning. I have you marked as one of my favorite artists, and your work is on my elfwood tour.

Your work is magical

Ha ha! I love the expression on the moon's face, like he's just humoring the fairy and can't wait for the sun to come up so he can catch some z's. Nice concept for the wings, too.

This is incredible! Exactly what type of mushrooms do you get on your pizza?

I love it! If you've seen the movies, the moon kind of looks like the actor for severus snape.

the idea of this portrait is amazingly poetic. Beautiful and graceful, yet strong.
