I have a friend who loves rats and we thought merkins were hilarious.
Two things though. I had no idea what a "merkin" was.
Merkin: A pubic wig. Merkins were originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia, and are now used as decorative items, erotic devices, or in films, by both men and women
Now that is out of the way, I also never painted with water colors before. I think it came out pretty good! I traced first, so that helped tons.
