Daughter Of The Sea by Loonaki Daughter Of The Sea by Loonaki
Dammit! I should be learning! >_<
Painting is just so tempting. I'm addicted... and the worst thing is that I always get most creative when I actually should learn.

However. I loved painting this! And I love Ariel. Even though I have to say that I like the story of the "Little Mermaid" by Andersen much more, I also grew up with Disneys Ariel. :la:


used materials: Ecoline watercolor, colored pencils, pastel chalk

I'm currently working on the watercolor tutorial. Be patient. ;] Here it is:

It's not a bad movie, but I just can't stand the Disney version of that tale. XD Your piece is gorgeous. I love the hands. I struggle with those, but yours are so beautiful!

One of my favourite works from 2011. I like how you did the coral reef, it's simple, but looks great.
Oh we use the Ariel detergent too... xD

It's very beautiful! We also have that detergent in Spain and we call her Ariel, no matter there's a detergent with that name.
