In all fairness the background was already done. Just waiting for a mermaid to swim through it.
It has been sitting there for months now just waiting for something exciting to be written upon it. I drew the face on some watercolor paper using the stencil as my guide. Then I colored it in with Pan Pastels. Just like real make up she started out with a base coat.
Looking at her I thought "this girl needs a tail" so I cut one out of watercolor paper and did my journaling on that before coloring it in with Pan Pastels. I wrote all my daydreams down about getting out of this COLD weather and going to sunny warm waters where I might run into this mermaid while snorkeling off of a yacht. Right before the crew makes me a fabulous gourmet lunch. One last swim and there she is!
Well, a girl can dream can't she? You know what they say you gotta dream big and in color! Keep warm or at least keep thinking warm thoughts. Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll get "back" to work now, I promise. Take care ~ Renee
