ACEO Mermaid and Baby Turtles by JoannaBromley ACEO Mermaid and Baby Turtles by JoannaBromley
An ACEO illustration of a mermaid relaxing at the bottom of the sea and enjoying the company of little baby turtles, who are showing off their newly found swimming skills! :-)

watercolors, colored pencils, gel pen on 140lbs hot press Arches paper and some subtle iridescent medium on her fishtail for added magic!

She doesn't look very relaxed to me! lol In fact she looks positively worried and sad! Beautiful illustration though, I love the baby turtles and how you've done the ones in the background ^_^

Thanks Janna!:cuddle: Whenever I babysat for friends or family, I can only remember being tired...I tried to tire them out to have my piece and I would be the one to fall asleep first!! :giggle:
