The above image is a detail from my most recent completed work, “Two Mermaids.” It was drawn in .03 mm pigment liner and coloured with pencils. It was drawn over two sessions, probably totalling about 4 hours from start to finish.
I have tried to carry continuity through the colours, by selecting a relatively small range of hues from which to work, and attempted to place the colours in a diagonal balance. Thus, though I have blended the colours differently – for example, in the mermaids’ tails – they are ultimately based on the same colour theme.
