Playful Mermaid



(let's see...) Winsor & newton Colored Ink, Copic Marker, Guache, Water Color, Pastel, and.....Colored Pencil. <whew>. I didn't use the genre "mixed media" for nothing ;). All this was done on a 9 x 12 Crescent Illustration Board (Cold Press.)

This is an illustration I am going to attempt to sell at the art show. It has its flaws, but over all I think it's good enough to hang on the wall. :D

The finished piece will look a bit different though. I added a transparent layer of Iridescent Medium on the bottom fins, bra, some scales, and for her eye shadow. Also, the scan couldn't seem to replicate the "ultramarine" blue I used in the background so as a result it's overly BLUE and bright. Oh well.

It took me almost 6 hours to complete....expect more mermaid stuff.....
