Selkie by NatasaIlincic Selkie by NatasaIlincic
"Every year, on the first day of summer, Bara would sit among the rocks soft with seaweed and slowly remove her seal skin. As she gently peeled back the thick fur she could feel the skin beneath prickle with pins and needles, and shiver with every gust of wind. She felt fresh, free, yet also exposed and alert."
Shell Necklaces (Encounters with the Imaginary, vol. III), Nataša Ilinčić

I love her freckles and normal-looking body.  That fold in the midsection.  She feels real and not like a cartoon.

This is absolutely beautiful! The sky is so beautiful and all the details here, like the skin and fur textures, are so evocative. The description fits the picture so well <3

Wonderful work! I have a special fondness for watercolors. The colors ocean, sky, and distant cliffs look subdued without being dull, and I love the rosiness of the girl's skin and the curliness of her hair. Plus, the fur texture on the seals and her freckles are a nice touch. :) All in all, a fantastic, cohesive piece! ❤️❤️
