African American Original Watercolour Paintings

Here are my two latest original watercolour paintings to be listed at Miss Ann Art.  They are both African American women but one is a Happy Fairy and the other may or may not be feeling blue.  

I don't see many images of African American fairy characters so I thought I would paint one myself totally in watercolour.  When I started Blue Lady I hadn't intended for her features to be so detailed and to put so much work into it but that's how it turned out in the end.  The original idea I had in mind for her was to create a painting that had an almost graphic design, illustration feel to it but I love drawing and painting faces so much that she ended up coming to life on paper as she is now. 

I'm pleased with how both turned out and I hope others feel the same too! Enjoy.
