An original faerie fantasy piece in coloured pencil
Tansy’s Secret by Jo Hards
If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you’ll probably be aware of my slight obsession with mythical beings such as mermaids, vampires, and of course, faeries. I’ve discussed my faerie addiction here before, when I made gothic faerie doll Aeshna. However, Aeshna is not the only faerie in Gothville. One of the Gothville Girls, Tansy likes to spend her time deep in the heart of Gothville Woods. She knows those woods well and often sees things that others may miss. On one such occasion, Tansy caught sight of a tiny figure darting through the undergrowth. Worried that others may not see the importance of protecting these beautiful, mystical creatures, Tansy keeps this secret to herself.
‘Tansy’s Secret‘ is an original faerie fantasy piece in coloured pencil. This detailed drawing measures approximately 420 x 297mm (A3 size). The scene is composed of sumptuous hues of purple, blue and green. The richness of the colours cannot be conveyed on screen and must be seen in reality to be fully appreciated. The lightfast pigments are set with non yellowing fixative to ensure many years of enjoyment. However, as with all artwork, it is recommended that Tansy’s Secret is not placed in direct sunlight.
The original piece is available to purchase, at the time of writing, from the Strange Little Girls online store, priced at £65. Gothic and fantasy artwork is supplied, unframed, and well packaged in a sturdy cardboard mailing tube, for you to frame as desired at home. Worldwide delivery is included in the price. Please note, the website URL does not appear on the original. Prints are not available at this time but may be introduced at some point in the future. Gothic rag doll ‘Tansy’ is also available to buy from the online store, priced at £48.
