Artwork Description

A mermaid drifts dreamily,with her dolphin and among other fanciful sea-life.
Like all my work,the majority is executed in colored pencil. I also like to use a combination of watercolors,gouache, acrylics and a little airbrush work. I tend to work in heavy layers of pencil and usually blend until you can't see the paper texure. I use prismacolor colored pencils,Mi-Tienes or Stonehenge paper.

Thanks for the compliments! Glad you like my work. I've worked very hard developing my colored pencil technique for over 20 yrs.(Makes me feel Old!)LOL...I also like to use a little of this and that. I use alot of heavy layers and white pencil for blending. I also use alot of pressure,that helps to get the vivid colors.
I checked out your work..WOW back!. Your only 14?! Your very talented!! Keep up the great work!
