Well, William (Li) suggested to me I try this paper and mess around with it 'cuase I'd probably like it.. and though it took me a while to get round to it, I just spent the last 3 hours outside in the sun and drew this ;) Good thinking Will! It was fun and think there'll be more of this soon! I believe the rest of the picture speaks for itself!!!
Spring be in the air :)

Terracotta and Cream colour pencil on Canson Mi-Teintes Paper.

Oh, this is just sooo beautiful!
You captured the apple blossoms very well, and the little fae on top is lovely 2 With her frail wings she could be easily mistaken for an apple blossem herself.
Looks like an interesting technique!
Did you use normal pencils or some kind of oil pastels or the like ?
This one does look like Spring indeed.
Have a nice bright and sunny Spring day 2

:-) Meike de Nooy replies: "Fairies are never very obvious so I tried to hide her a bit!

The technique is fair(l)y easy and I used Karisma colour pencils. I think derwent orprismacolour or uhh eurocolour will all be fine as well (though don't poin me down on that! 12"

I almost missed the little fae at the top! Wonderful composition.

:-) Meike de Nooy replies: "I'm glad she doesn;t stand out too much, I tried to interwieve her in the picture. It's not like you see fairies daily, you have to search for them!"

:-) Meike de Nooy replies: "William Morris??? *looks him up on the net* gosh does this guy only draw patterns? Glad you like my work though, you shoudl try this techniuque it's rather easy if I may say so! I'll go have a look at your work in a sec! En een puntje aan zuigen?! Daar had ik echt nog nooit van gehoord. Maar kan wel ongeveer raden wat je bedoelt LOL 2"

I like how you used a different color of paper. The flowers remind me of those on a dogwood tree.

:-) Meike de Nooy replies: "Yep! I hope to try some black paper next!"
