Flower Fairy

This is one of my favourite fairies. I sketched her out very lightly with a 2H graphite pencil. Then I proceeded to add layers of light and darker shades using my Spectrum Noir Markers. When using my my SN Markers I always start with the lightest shade. I blend that into a mid tone and finally darken with the darkest shades. I particularly like my Spectrum Noir Markers when I’m doing fantasy art because they are so vibrant and easy to use…. once you know how. 


She is also available on red bubble as phone cases, mugs, note books and much more. Check out her and the rest of my items on Red Bubble here. 

Otherwise, prints are available in my Etsy store and you can keep up to date with my current pieces on my Instagram and Facebook pages where I constantly run competitions.

Day 14 – 30 Days of Art 

As you can see, I am still having trouble with faces! Argh! It’s driving me mad! I think it might be time to do a little more research  into them! You-tube tonight it is! 

Fairies again! I love fairy art. Fantasy art is something that I would like to become better at. I love all those kinds of things. I love reading about fairies and vampires and all things magical. The worlds of Harry Potter and the likes really make me happy and get my imagination started! 

I found this writing in google and I absolutely love it! I love getting creative with writing.

Day 13 – 30 Days of Art. 

So I’m nearly at the half way mark. I am starting to see some improvement in proportions and being able to use my eraser a little less than usual. I’ve still got lots to work on. 

I love insects. The colours and the way their bodies are shaped are really interesting. I’ve started looking at a few different types just to get a feel for how they work. I’m using reference photos from Pinterest for my practice sketches. However for the art that I sell I use my own photos or what is in my head. I have been looking at some of the free image sites and I’ll start using those soon.

My other half loves cars so I started practicing All ready for sports day! It’s those. I am hoping to draw something cool for his birthday which is coming up very shortly! 


The original fairy drawing I used Spectrum Noir Markers on cotton paper and I am incredibly happy with the result. If you would like to purchase a print of my gorgeous fairy please visit my etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist

Day 12 – 30 days of Art 

Practicing the female figure. I haven’t used any reference photos, these are just from my head. I obviously have the proportions right in some but not the others. I think I’ll do a study of the female form shortly. I think that will greatly improve my fairy drawings. The one I finished off today is outta whack a little bit but I’m really happy that I got it down on paper.

I’ve used water colour cotton paper, so the alcohol markers sucked in really quick and I wasn’t able to get a great blend. I’ll have to get some market paper for future marker drawings. I used Spectrum Noir Markers. I really love the colours.

Day 11 – 30 Days of Art

Today I’ve been looking in one of my bridal magazines. I’m engaged to a gorgeous and handsome Welsh bloke and we’ve been engaged 2 years now. We still have no date for our wedding but that hasn’t stopped me looking and dreaming about how our perfect wedding will look. 🙂 I love drawing hands. This maybe why I love doing nails so much. Hands can have so much character and they always tell a story of their life. 

Of course I’m drawing, sketching and this time using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I haven’t used them much, and the paper I’m using probably isn’t the best for them but, you gotta use what you got sometimes. Drawing people are another skill that needs to be improved upon! But at least I’m no longer afraid to do it. WIN!!!

If you would like to see more of my fairies (they get better, I promise) then follow me on instagram www.instagram.com/chrissyturley30 or have a look at my etsy store https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist
