Painting on the Walls

After redoing our floors we wanted to have the whole house painted...but that just isn't in the budget this year.  So, DD17, with some assistance from DD15, has taken to doing some acrylic painting on the girls' bedroom walls.

First, it was a little dragon (next to an ElfQuest family tree):

Sketch from a D&D manual
Getting the base coat down
Adding some details
Finished!

And since that turned out so darling, next came a Druid, also from a D&D Manual:
Starting the sketch, DD15 helped with the facial features
Skin tones proved a trifle difficult
Now for the green
Adding some action

Completed Druid

And finally, a little fairy from Cicely Mary Barker Flower Fairies:
DD15 Sketched most of this one
And DD17 painted it so fast, I didn't get any progress pictures!

Next up is a Mage from D&D...and some more fairies for the baby's room...and the boys are asking for large dragons!

Love the flower fairy! We have a collection of those books. And I happen to be reading Phantastes right now, so I've got fairyland on the brain.
