The only way to stay cool these days is to stay in the water. This mermaid knows all about that and she's staying very comfortable under the water.
You may remember the sketch from a year or so ago...I did this by first doing a drawing from a life drawing session, then coming home and playing with lines and shapes on it.
Then I did a colored version on Yupo.
And now I've begun another - this time on Twinrocker watercolor paper. I'm still trying to get lots of texture in the painting by using granulating colors and mixing them to granulate even more.
