Mermaid Face

Vitamin Sea continues. One more big challenge : stencils with watercolor sprays for background which didn’t really work. Jane used pastel paper and I used rough watercolor paper which seems to be too absorbent. I sprayed and sprayed and made almost muddy mess.

Then came drawing with soft pastel… turned face I think my second ever… there was lots of suffering but pastel is very forgiving… so it finally worked and I am totally happy with her.


I love this course! It’s so far the best of all art courses I’ve ever taken.

  1. Oh, well done. Both on the result and on persevering!
    Love the flowing lines in her hair and the white-wash look on her face (don’t know exactly how to call that, but it makes the face stand out nicely).
