I've decided to go soft for this particular piece--no bold lines--just a fine inking and watercolor washes all the way. The border is an actual Celtic pattern which I've traced over with silver metallic ink. It's a shame that the soft shimmer of the silver doesn't show up well on the pics. This painting depicts a lovely mermaiden that lives in one of the many enchanted pools found in the mysterious Emerald Isles--with gorgeous green eyes, shamrocks entwined in her fiery red hair, and a garland of fresh water seaweed, shells, pearls, coral is layered across her neck and chest. Done in ink, watercolor, ans some acrylic on watercolor paper.
