Singing, Sailing, and Swimming






I spent the weekend doing another five in the series, this bunch being a little different from the last. I've never worked with ink on a brush before, so I wanted to try it out and focus on line quality. These five are also slightly different from the last in that together they create a story. This mermaid is a siren ( are all mermaids supposed to be sirens?) and she lures a sailor into the sea and steals his hat. Hope you enjoy - Have a great week!

It's a great story, and the illustrations are marvelous. I have to ask..what happened to the sailor? It doesn't look as if it were your first time to use ink with a brush. Great work!
