Mermaid and Mason Jar

I was able to take some time out today and color up an image that has been on my wish list for quiet some time.  :)  Why I put these two together?  I don't know other than I wanted to color this mermaid and this jar so why not together.  LOL  These images are Sweet November images from CC Designs and were colored with Prismacolor pencils on Balsa Wood


This was a good challenge for me to try coloring metal and glass.  She is swimming in distilled water - that is instead of murky water although there is some color reflection that I'm not sure if it looks like murky water or just reflection on the glass?  Then after it was completely finished, I went back in a smeared straight lines to help it look like she was inside the glass instead of out in front.  That was a scary moment but I'm breathing ok now.  :)



Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!
