Manelle’s Challenge.

It is too hot for me, so today I gave up and I’m sat in a darkened room, which is only about 5 degrees cooler than out side – but it is good.

So, it is a good time to accept a challenge – a ‘draw this in your style’ challenge.

On Instagram, Manelle from Utah, on her site @talesfantastic, has set a challenge to draw her mermaid in our own style. Her mermaid is one of a series that can be found in her new book, ‘Mermendium’. This mermaid reminds me of the tale of the fairy, Melusine although there is no connection.

She has used watercolours. Mine is using an Artline pen and Karismacolor pencils. I’ve put the two together so that you cam compare. What do you think?
