"A Fairy and Her Dragonfly" fantasy acrylic painting

Full 16-minutes painting process on my Utube channel:

"A Fairy and Her Dragonfly" acrylic on canvas process painting. Inspired by a long walking and plein airs in a park near home in June-July this year.
I came up with a story and a pose for this painting a long ago, but couldn’t decide what to do with the bg. Finally, I took some ref photos of different bushes and tree roots in the park and decided to stop on rosehip. At first I did a tiny pencil tonal thumbnail sketch and finished it a little bit more in Photoshop, than copied on the canvas with a projector.

Although at first, I wanted to make this painting in a mixed technique - acrylic + oil paints, in the end I decided only on acrylic.
