June Visual Journal Prompt: Week 3 - Ocean Waves

mermaid sketch drawing

I'm in week 3 of my journal prompts and pleased with the progress.  She is pretty much what I had in my mind.  I've wanted to paint a few mermaids this summer and here is my first!  My favorite part is her hair.  I would like to use this one to create a series.  I don't have a ton planned for July so that's what I'll be working on.

I'm now realizing how nice it is to create a mood board.  It really kept me focused.  Pinterest inspires me to organize my ideas.  Have you ever used a mood board to create a project?

She's done for right now.  Eventually, I will transfer this sketch to watercolor paper and add paint.

  3. Your sketches are all great.
    That certainly is a beautiful mermaid you created...
    I can almost feel the ocean washing through her hair.

  4. Oh how gorgeous she is with her flowing hair!! The scetch is totally awesome and I am so curious about how she will turn out on color! The mood board thing seems very interesting, what a great idea to collect and then get a good focus point! Thank you for sharing! ♥ Conny Mix It Monthly
