This is amazing, I didn't know it was possible to do such amazing detail with watercolour.

There was a degree of cussing and eye strain involved for sure!
If you want to see real watercolour detail, look up an artist named Paul Bonner...

Thanks:) actually it was a commission from an engineer for his wife (she has a fascination for mermaids and he is a closet violin player) but I'm sure I could muster up a story to suit! Thanks for the tip
