I have seen her work :D I wouldn't consider it inspiration for this piece however. I worked on a book of flower fairies and looked at photos of flowers and tried to see the fairies in them :nod: It was fun. I have several other flower based fairies in my gallery that were used in my book.

A really lovely job on the Iris fairy family. They're so elegant, but they REALLY smell bad if u try to do watercolor paintings of them from real-life (I've done this twice!)!

:iconmisticunicorn:
MisticUnicorn Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
Yeah, they tend to smell bad after a day or two. You have to change the water often and it sometimes helps :D

LovelyLadyGray Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
Yeeps, that is why I don't paint them very often in watercolor. Hmm that might be a good idea to keep in mind the next time I do iris watercolor paintings. =D

This is a fantastic idea! Not fairy, not furry, but something very special and unique unto itself. How did you think of such a wonderful, mystic idea?! :)

Thanks :D I've been drawing flower fairies for a long time, but it is more recently that I started making them look more like flowers themselves. I am having a great time with them :dance:
