Hot Pink Mermaids And Forest Green Fairies

Hello blogging friends!

I hope you all are doing good. It's been so hot lately that I've spent most of my time in the beach. Either swimming, sun bathing, painting or sketching.

"Mermaid  art Journal"

Remember my mermaid -art journal?

I continued working on a new spread. Inspiration avenue - theme this week is "hot pink summer sizzle".
What a great chance to paint a mermaid with  hot pink hair.

I added some "mermaid-ish" quotes to the paintings:

"I have sea foam in my veins
I understand the language of the waves"

Creative Tuesday - challenge this week is "red balloon"
My balloons are bubbles 
and I end up painting bubbles to the next spread.

"The Sea once it casts its spell
holds one in its net of wonder forever"
-Jacques Cousteau

... so very true

"Mermaid journal"

I haven't been on the beach all the time.
I've also enjoyed time in the garden

So many great colors in the summer nature. 
Yellow, orange, gold, red, green, sepia...

Here is my latest fairy:

"Laugh in the woods"

Watercolor background and all the drawings done with felt-tipped pencils.

I'm now busy with a children book project and  I hope to share some lovely illustrations with you within next months.

I love this song from Faun 
there are fairies laughing :)
