I made this for my partner in the recent 4X6 art swap. I immediately knew I wanted to do a mermaid and play around with my water colors. Then I came across this gorgeous stock photo on DeviantArt by kxhara http://kxhara.deviantart.com/.

The final piece:


Here is the preliminary sketch:




The hands in the original were also somewhat cut off and I was having a hard time rendering them. I also had a hard time with the hair. I think it should have been a little darker in some areas to draw the eye down more, but I couldn't seem to resolve the issue while still making it look like it was floating in the water.

Thanks for looking! Comments, critiques, and water color tips are greatly appreciated.
