A Mermaids Peace by Animejaz A Mermaids Peace by Animejaz
Here is my second piece from my "Doodles Revisited" series. A Mermaids Peace.

If you can believe it, I left this piece alone 10 years ago as a basic pencil sketch. (check out my Instagram to see the before and after of this picture @jazmynwhitman)  I've seen many of these caves carved out by the waves all along the coast of Monterey Bay.  I had visited home for the summer and got this cave sketched out before I went back to Iowa to school. I slowly added to it over the years and visits home but quickly found other empty sketchbooks to fill.

When I first found her again I was heading back up to Monterey for a family visit and really felt the magic of the ocean again. Bringing her to life with color was such a joy. When I came home to my job this piece was an amazing reminder of being outside in the surf.  I felt the blaze of the suns last colors on my skin and wished to be out of the office and on the cool rock with her. It was a true escape to fix her up and bring us both alive in the colors.

She is graphite and Prismacolor Pencil.

Lovely looking slender mermaid!!  Her back-fin looks cool. I’d love to see more of this beauty!! ;)

Thanks sandcastler I have a few other mermaids I'm working on. I never though to go more into this one.  Maybe she'll pip up again. :D
