This was inspired by the movie 'Bambi', which my friend Rose lent me, the rain drop scene: 'Drip drip drop little April showers!' I wanted to do a picture with raindrop/dew faeries and I have one that is bigger with more faeries, but I wasn't sure how to do the background the way I wanted it and I didn't want to mess it up. So I took one of the segments and colored it, this took me a week. A note on the roses, they were inspired by a recent moderator's choice: .
I discovered that part of the secret to getting them to look real, or halfway real, is TEXTURE! Also, the wings on the faerie were inspired by another recent moderators choice:
Also worth noting is that I used no black in this picture, which I did with watercolor pencil (Faber-Castell) and colored pencil (Prismacolor). Happy commenting! :) *Jenny is praying that the HTML works!* Ok, it worked halfway, let's see what happens this time!

Hi again!! I just love your coloured pictures, they always transmit a lot of life. In this one, I think you did a gorgeous job on the fairy, specially in her hair and clothes. You chose the colors very well, in my opinion, since the fairy doesn't blend with the background but still looks like she's in her natural environment.
Don't tell the other artist, but I like your roses better! 2

I was really afraid I was going to loose her in the background , which often happens in a detailed drawing, but the background colors worked out perfectly, which you have noticed. 2 I won't tell, but I am very grateful to have been inspired by her. 2 Thank you for your high compliments!"

Oooooooooooooooo! Pretty colors! That's a really cool idea. The fairy holding the drop and all. Like the colors! Very cute2

I really love the picture. The fairy stands out and the wings look somewhat like leaves. It's very beautful.

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Thank you!I was trying more for dragonfly looking wings, but I'll take leaves as well. 2"

This is absolutely amazing, the colours are so lovely and warm, the roses are so beautiful and so is the fairy, the colour of her hair is so beautiful

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: *bows* I am glad you like it! I worked very hard on that rose, roses used to 'hate' me until I figured out what made them tick. 2"

Amazing! I am a fellow artist and I still feel that I should keep practicing to be as good as you! Your roses are amazing! Keep doing it

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: *bows deeply* Thank you for all the kind words about the roses, I have a hard time getting them right! I think that an artist should never stop practicing, there are things I need to get better at myself, namely perspective for things like buildings,and lighting. 2"

Whoa! those are great roses! I STILL wish I could draw! :'(

18 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Roses are still a bit tough for me, but hard work pays off, it doesn't seem like it when you are slogging along going "How the heck do they do that?!" but it does. And you can draw, it'll just take time to get good at it. 2"

Beautiful. This makes me think of a snowglobe my grandmother gave me that features a beautiful faerie catching a raindrop from a flower of one kind or another. Never stop making art!
