Finally Finished My Mermaid


I have been working on this mermaid for a while.  She's from Coloring Books 2020 on Etsy.  I enjoy doing some projects that take a while.  I colored her with Copic markers, Luminance pencils and CarbOthello chalk pastel pencils.  I added some Stickles to the air bubbles, although the glitter is not visible in the photo.  This was mt first time coloring black hair,  I photocopied the partially colored image and colored the hair on that first as a trial (suggested by my daughter.)  Thank you, Katie.  After I somewhat  thought I had it down I colored the original.  I could still use some practice on where to place the shading. I am looking forward to coloring my next image. 

I may try to down size her to get it on a card.  That may not work because my printer is a piece of junk and tends to print off color.


  1. Absolutely stunning and your colouring is amazing!!! She deserves to be framed
