approx. 18" x 22" Acrylics on watercolor paper

A Quick painting about 2 weeks working off and on as I worked on multiple other projects. Probably worked about an hour or two each day... Trying to push my self to not rely on reference and complete projects in a more timely manner...
I realize the piece isn't perfect but enjoy it none the less :) she is a fairy after all!!

Thanks to lisajen-stock for a pose reference..


Flowers were done from a loose reference, everything else pretty much unreferenced.

Hi! I'm gonna publish a short story in a Spanish literary webpage, and they have asked me for some illustrations. The story starts with a small fairy playing in a field of poppies... so this one looks so perfect! May you let me use your painting for this purpose, please? I'll try they put your name or a link to your dA page, if this is possible...

PS. I really love the painting *__*.

i'd be happy to let you use it so long as I am credited.. (c) 2008 Carol Phillips and if you could get a link to my web [link] that would be awesome!

I'd love to see the article once its available that would be neat too:)

Let me know what files size they need.. you can email me

Best Wishes for your story..

Oh, thank you :aww:! You're so nice...

I've been talking to the editors of the webpage, so I don't think there's any problem with crediting you. It will be difficult to put a link to your webpage, though, because of some technical reasons. Hope you don't mind!

Regarding the size, I think a small size would be right. I don't think they'll find any problems with reducing it a little, or we can just take the small version which initially appears when you open the entry in dA. Thanks for your mail anyway; I'll write you it we need something.

And, of course, I'll show you the final result when it is available. You'll have to be patient btw; there's lots of work for them and some other publications they need to do (smile).

It will be great to read it.. A credit should be enough.. I really appreciate your asking about the use of the artwork first. That was very nice!!

Take care and Keep Creating!~Carol

It may be difficult for you to read it... the text is written in Spanish X). Perhaps I'll try to translate it, i dunno... And well, as I told another girl yesterday, I guess I'd like my own work to be credited if used.

Thanks again (smile)!!!

Her wings are absolutely gorgeous! The colors in this painting are wonderful. I really like her dress too - it looks almost as if it's made of poppy petals.
