Howdy, howdy! I'm on the mermaid trail, flipping my mermaid tail... Here's my latest sketch. I've done her in pencil and charcoal on yummy thick grey 100% cotton rag paper.
Since my big mermaid painting is coming along so slowly (due to the wood absorbing the color too much even with the coat of gesso), I feel the need to keep the spirit of the mermaid alive. I think I will do another mermaid sketch this week as well. I'm still a bit uncomfortable in the studio due to my injuries from the auto accident so the sketching keeps me happy.
You know I like being able to sit in my big chair and putz on my sketching and doodling in the evenings. I might even try a "Froud" fairy or two or the unicorn Tam wanted us to start last week...
Thank you to everyone who took the time to give me such wonderful encouraging comments on my last posts! I LOVE going and seeing what everyone else is doing on their blogs too - such creative juice flowing out there!
It's raining cats and dogs outside today - wish it was raining men...hallelujah!!!
Forever in art, Jessica
P.S. I hope the mermaid boobies don't give me a "R" rating! LOL!
