Day 7 - 30/30 Challenge - Mermtangle 1

Mermtangle 1
marker & watercolor on arches hot press, 6" x 6", $45

"Well, here's something different!" I can hear everyone saying. I needed to do something brighter and more colorful! I love the wintery limited palette, but I needed something cheery and fun.

I'm working on a new mermaid for the Great South Bay Music Festival, so I draw a lot of mermaids. I actually started this one a couple of weeks ago as a doodle (after I'd been researching Zentangles - which is a story for another day). I finished it up and colored it in – which I seem to rarely do with these ink doodles, I usually prefer them in black and white.

And, I haven't even seen the Peter Max exhibit at Nassau Museum yet!
