Tree tales

Kristen of www.sleeplessbeekeeper.com was so kind to allow me to use her daughter's photo as a reference.

Meet the tree fairy, who listens to the woes and tales of one of the Old Ones.

It's actually a more elaborate sketch in my sketchbook, 9.5 x 12 cm /3.7 x 4.7 inches
I tweaked the colors just a bit because they were a bit too much on the green side.

I used two brushes, a Pentel water brush and some old round brush that I never use because it does not have a point and loses hair all the time. Surprisingly though, it is able to hold a lot of pigment and water.
