Taking part to Sunday Postcard Art's challenge "Silhouettes". Very inspiring theme!
Here's my mermaid card:
For this card I used water based acrylic colours, water colours and water colour pencils. The mermaid I drew to transparent vellum and cut it to use as a sablon. Then I coloured the background paper with water colour, leaving some white between brush strokes. The algae I drew with the pencils. After this I applied different acrylic colours through the sablon. The shell is also made with acrylic colours, but just freehanded without planning ahead. Finally I spread some colour areas with water.
Thank you for looking.
