– Wander In The Abyss Mermaid #MerMay2017!
The month of May is over in few days and so the #MerMay2017 challenge, I loved to participate and during the month I re-posted some of my mermaids I previously painted and I made this new mermaid painting.
I am sorry I haven’t post much lately, it was because I had to fix a problem with my computer, thankfully right now is all working and fixed! I haven’t been writing here on my Blog but I did post my work on Instagram and if you follow me there you know I have been pretty busy drawing and painting!
Today I am excited about my ” New Release” and to share with you my finished “Wander In The Abyss – Mermaid” a watercolor and ink painting. If you came across my previous post you remember this mermaid and that I was showing my work in progress, from the pencil sketch to the begin stage of watercolor, if you missed that post, maybe you like to read it and see how this painting come alive. This watercolor mermaid had a pretty long process, lots of patience and layers for me to be able to obtain this look and all the shades of colors on a “not watercolor paper” like the gray toned paper sketchbook that I used. This time, I really wanted to try something different using a toned paper for background and I wanted to see how I could use watercolors and inks on a paper for dry media. I can say that It’s pretty tricky! I am happy with the way the painting turned out!
A Limited Edition of 20 Art Prints is now available only hand embellished
I will add by hand the gold ink to embellish each print and turn it in one of a kind and special. It is very difficult to print the gold ink from an original painting because the scanner and printer aren’t able to give the real gold pigments and spark, that’s why I decided to do only a very small run of special prints hand embellished. When the 20 prints are sold out I won’t print them again and with time they will increase in value! Prints are size 8×10 inches, I offer a special discounted price for my friends and for anyone that place an order here on the Blog Price is $45 + $8 Shipping via USPS Priority Mail within US if you like to reserve a print just fill in the form linked.
Details about my painting:
I Sketched on a Strathmore 400 Series medium surface 80 lb – gray toned paper large sketchbook size 9 x 12 inches for dry media. I used a Draft/Matic Pencil 0.5mm by Mab Graves Limited Edition for ALVIN for my sketch and I used French Artists Watercolors Sennelier l’Aguarelle and Artist’s Loft watercolor pan set I used this set for a opaque- chalk effect.
