Illustration Friday- bottled

mermaid in a bottle

Does she look sad? or sleepy? Maybe she’s sad because she’s caught in a bottle. I’m sure she’ll be put back in the sea soon.

This is  actually a series of paintings I’m working on. So I was very happy to see the IF word this week. Bottled.

I drew a mermaid in a bottle a while ago,(actually I have several, poor things)  but I couldn’t make up my mind what to do. (what’s new!!!) Watercolours , or mixed media.

I had scanned the mermaid into my computer  a while ago, so as my mixed media piece isn’t finished  I decided to digitally colour it in Corel painter  using my Wacom tablet. It was fun, it’s been a while since I’ve used it.
