Well today I came across another great website 'Mixed Media Monday'. I thought I would attempt the theme as I have been playing around a little bit with mixed media plus I really wanted to re do my mermaid that I did for my very first Illustration Friday attempt a while back. So here it is. I used water colour paints on acrylic paper, then went over parts in acrylic ink and acrylic paint, then went over it with black liner pen. I really like using the acrylics on top of water colour as sometimes water colour lacks a bit of oomf for me. I also made this a little project for Rhys, my nearly six year old boy and he had a great time with glitter paints, pens, texta's and all sorts. I drew a basic mermaid and he did the rest. Riley my 2 and half year old had a go but decided not to follow the theme and painted a tunnel, that one is still drying on our deck.
