My stepdad is a fisherman. That's him up in that little boat, and he'll definitely have a good 'fish tale' to tell all his buddies back at the docks... ;)

Watercolors on Arches WC Paper

That's very beautiful. I love the water, it just looks wonderful. I think the tail could stand to be a little bigger, but that's just personal opinion. Everything else is wonderful. I wonder what your fisherman's going to think when he pulls that out of the water. . . 2

Oh Sarah! She's beautiful! Those colors are just amazing! I love the way you added scales...so subtle, but just perfect!!

:-) Sarah Trumpp replies: "Thanks again, V! I was so nervous, I've never painted for him before, but he was amused.. 12"

The whole picture is amazing. Your courage to move away from the stereotypical Arielle mermaid look, the little fisherman and the wonderfull colouring. How you manage to blend colours so beautigully without the slightest dirtying is admirable.

1 Sarah Trumpp replies: "Wow, Stav, I think you actually made me blush with this one... 12 Thanks a lot - I've really been slaving over the watercolors over the past year, so I appreciate that someone appreciates the effort.. hehe 2"

Great pic, i love the colours of her tail. I like how well this picture is drawn it looks so neat, i usually have the shakes when i try and be neat.
i think that mermaid has a death wish too.

:-) Sarah Trumpp replies: "Thanks a lot, Lindzi! 2 And yeah, I think she does too. 12"
