Mermaid Princess 'Atlantisa'
In the past few months, I have made three attempts at a mermaid illustration using this particular pose. I was just unable to make it work...but since diving into the watercolour and ink style I have been using of late, I had another go and the results are quite pleasing : )
Creating an asymmetrically balanced design, and adding the washes of colour really take this piece to the next level, compared to a previous post; Mermaid Princess 'Azalea'.
So when creating a figure, think about whether adding a basic or detailed background would complement your illustration, and give it that extra visual boost : )
