"I will prepare a draught for you, with which you must swim to land tomorrow before sunrise, and sit down on the shore and drink it. Your tail will then disappear, and shrink up into what mankind calls legs, and you will feel great pain, as if a sword were passing through you."

"But think again," said the witch; "for when once your shape has become like a human being, you can no more be a mermaid."


-From Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid"

Another illustration for my Illustration Techniques I class. The technique we practiced in this piece was the acrylic transfer process. We transfered laser prints using gel medium and painted on top with acrylic paint. This was my first time using artist grade acrylic paint to create an image and I am so very pleased with it!

Mayhaps more of this method in the future?

12"x16", Acrylics and acrylic transfer on wood panel.

I teach a fantasy unit at my school and the students are always shocked to learn that in the original Little Mermaid story, Ariel dies. You really created a powerful piece here. I bought this bookmark when I was at DragonCon. I love it!

It's amazing how handy sponges are for those sorts of textural effects. It's fun to get sloppy with the paint every now and again!
