Janie O'Brien's page in Sharon Rogers' Mermaids & Seahorses journal

This time I didn't bother photographing the steps involved in creating this picture, as my method is always pretty similar. I painted the paper first with water colour delineating the sky and the water with different blues : cerulean for the sky and green for the water. I fussy cut all the collage elements I might use, then mixed and matched on my background until I was satisfied with result. They were then glued on. The last step was to glaze over the finished work to increase the underwater effect and finally a pearlised green spray with Shadow Mist. Sharon I hope you don't mind I chose a merman, Poseidon, instead of a mermaid.
