Sometimes faeries are shy, and nearly impossible to view up close as they seldom sit still for long, least of all long enough to photograph for a painting...

Luckily, I was already studying this delicate mushroom lying beneath a tree deep in the forest when this fairy landed upon it to rest for a bit. At first, she did not see me but when she met my gaze, she immediately became shy and covered her nakedness. She was there for only a moment and then flitted off into the trees but not before I snapped a decent picture of her to paint.

This beautiful little watercolor painting, bathed in soft peach and sepia tones is painted with exquisite detail. Dappled light dances across the trees in the background while the little fairy sits upon a mushroom.

The Modest Fairy measures just under 11" x 17" to a proportion that when matted, fits beautifully in a standard 16" x 20" picture frame
