I will prepare a draught for you, with which you must swim to land tomorrow before sunrise, and sit down on the shore and drink it. Your tail will then disappear, and shrink up into what mankind calls legs, and you will feel great pain, as if a sword were passing through you.” 
- Excerpt from the Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen

Done in watercolor on 8 x 5" in paper. 

This was probably the hardest one, what with the carefully leaving the whites and the tentacles.
A part of a watercolour illustration series of Little Mermaid I was doing. ...I should continue it when I get the time...I have a lot of them sketched out but just haven't found the time to keep painting.
I completely forgot I had a bunch of watercolours I didn't upload onto dA, so I'll be slowly uploading them :)
