A pixie, or pixy, is said to be a fairy or an elf. Everybody knows that both of those are mischievous sprites.
This is an artistic pixie, painting nature to while away some time.
According to folklore, pixies originated in England. They are good looking little people with pointed ears.
Pixies are commonly seen in green outfits with a pointed hat. They don't have wings like fairies do, so they can't fly but they skip and flit about quickly. They love to dance in the shadows and ride on insects.
Pixies are said to leave a pixie dust in their wake.

Pixies can lead you astray so never follow one even if they beckon you to do so! If you do happen to follow one and you get lost, turn a piece of your clothing inside out and that will break the spell.

I am looking forward to creating some drawings of pixies in color but that is something for me to anticipate at this stage.
My first focus is on learning to draw with pencil because that is the easiest medium.
I must go and keep my eyes peeled for some pixie dust!
