Welcome to our weekend art challenge all about fairies! We are absolutely delighted with the results of the art challenge this week.

Our students have created a wonderful array of artwork, including an incredible lino cut and print from student Lydia below.

Our featured image this week is by Rose-Marie and is a stunning watercolour with a beautiful poem hand written. Rose-Marie wrote the following to go along side her illustration.

I found my inspiration in a very cute and very very old game of cards “Fairies and trolls” that belongs to our family.


Student Luiza Varovici found a great resource for fairy and forest fantasy creatures. Hop over to https://www.thepicsees.com to find out more!

We are certain that you will enjoy all of the beautiful pieces of artwork below and would like to thank all of our students for taking part. If you would like to join in our next challenge, visit our blog tomorrow to find out the theme and what it all entails!

On the FB page I read that the new art challenge is about fairies. I was thinking of doing a print for one of my next assignments, so this came in handy for practice. It’s Schmincke lino ink on illustration paper. The largest is colored in with QOR high chroma watercolors.
These two little Monsters would like to take part in the weekend challenge ” fairies”.

Contrary to popular belief, fairies are not delicate, fragile creatures 😉

White pen on cardboard, a fairy sketch and a petal porcelain fairy model, and then finished in watercolour
I am a fan of all fairy artwork and have plates and books with Cicely M Barker flower fairies.  I love the photos too on the blog showing different fairy themes!  I have attached “Twilight faires sprinkling fairy dust” this is in watercolour pencil and silver gel pen, and of course glitter!

A huge thank you for this week’s challenge! I was meant to draw fairies, but..These are based on myth and folklore and Anna Egorova’s representations. I find them looking more like insects than humans, and they hang around with the pollinators making sure the wild flowers will make fruit.

It reminded me of my childhood – I loved my Cicely Mary Barker book.
I chose the Rose fairy because my gorgeous god mother sent me a pale pink rose plant for my birthday during lockdown. I started off with a pencil sketch but then decided to add watercolour. I hope you like them !

A thought- more fairies

Oh my goodness, managed to spot one. Yesterday’s walk in the woods was worth it. (I wish.) Definitely inspired by that old urge to find a fairy, by any means.

Weekend Challenge? Give fairies a bit more oomph and power… (If anyone is thinking she suddenly looks a bit different, it’s because I added a background and a bit of ‘flare’!)

Here is my magical, glamour fairy. I’ve drawn her and used watercolour & skin tone pencils, a pretty piece of card to compliment the colours used. And I’ve added some pretty stickers to finish it off.

Fairies. ‘Fairyland’ perhaps?! This is a pen and ink drawing I did a while ago, not at all something I’d normally draw.
