I love painting Mermaids! I love their flowy fins and elegant silhouette. These things make for a fun watercolor project on the Prima watercolor panel. I first sketched out my mermaid with the no. 88 watercolor pencil (in the earth tones set). This color is a perfect light yellow to softly sketch out and water down if you need to make any corrections. I then used the classic and decadent pies Prima watercolor sets to paint my girl and the background .....can't forget the bubbles and starfish. I also used a white paint pen to add some soft highlights in the eyes, bubbles, and shells :-)
I hope you enjoy!
