This was a little test I did last weekend. I am going to do my first mermaid drawing and I wanted to at least have tried drawing the water and fish to see how well I would do. Angelfish is one of my favorite fish, they have something elegant about them. It was fun to do this. This is a photo of the drawing and it doesn't show the sparkly parts very well but the scan was even worse.
In December I got a pretty girl from Denmark, Helene, to do a couple of photos for me for the mermaid girl. I am really exited to get started, she's a sweet girl and I really do look forward mixing it all together to hopefully a great drawing (:
Last weekend we went out to buy some new pastels, I didn't have any blues in this nuance. I've been watching a lot of programs with fish and water and studied it's colors and movement. I have come to love the ocean so much the past year, not really sure where it comes from as I used to fear water when I was younger.
