I paint in either acrylics or in watercolours. I love the faerie/fairy genre and mostly paint winged creatures, though I do also paint mermaids, Alice and Lowbrow style.
Acrylic is the greatest (compared to watercolour) because if you make a mistake you can generally paint over it! With watercolour, it's not so forgiving. I love both though, as both have their benefits. I love the layering of watercolours and the beautiful jewel like tones you can achieve. Am yet to try oils but everyone tells me it's the best medium - I don't know that I have the patience.
I am an Australian artist and have been painting faeries for over ten years now, I was lucky enough to be published in The Art of Faery, The World of Faery and Watercolour Fairies. I paint faeries, mermaids, elves and am starting on fairytales… oh subject matter do stop with your unending temptations… I have to stop procrastinating!
