It's you the Little One

Well, who's saying that? The Little and curious Wild Boy going around so fearless (and always with a stone in his hand), or the Little Flower Fairy staring at this stranger?

Like Alexander the Little, this painting was commissioned by my mother-in-law because she wants a fantasy portrait of my second born, too. As for the first, also this time I really tried to do my very best. Nevertheless, I feel quite disappointed when I realized that, even after three years, I scarcerly notice any improvement in my painting technique.  A big difference is that this time I painted my son directly from scratch, and not drawing a pencil sketch which went scanned, as I did with Alexander.
Hope, she will like it anyway.
Anatomy references for fairies pose come from the amazing Senshistock at DeviantArt. Reference for the lovely child are, of course, my own (after maaany attempts to get a decent shot).

It's so magical and lovely, I'm sure your mother-in-law will be very happy! :)
I love how you include so many details to look at and discover, without distracting from the main focus.
If you would like to change/improve your painting technique, maybe you could experiment a bit more, try out some very different approaches to painting than usual? And just see where it leads, what you like, what you could include in your painting routine, etc.
Have a nice day :)

Thank you Lyraina! You are very kind.

You got some good suggestions. In fact, I would like to go out of my comfort zone. Sometimes I draw with other styles, I should do more.
