A tongue in cheek, bawdy Irish pin-up. You are invited to laugh and celebrate your inner Irish. Who’s the lucky one? The girl with the newfound gold or the leprechaun himself?
This piece is titled, “Devil Take the Women” after the old Irish tune, Whiskey in the Jar.
“I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me But the devil take the women for they never can be easy”

Here are some shots of the piece in progress:
Original sketches and ideas. I definitely liked the leprechaun from the get go.
The pencil drawing. Pretty fleshed out and ready for ink.
The inked piece with water brushed over – ready for watercolor wash on the background.
Early stages of watercolor wash.
A little more detail, more layers of color added.
And some close ups of the detail. Watercolor and pen & ink.
