Every now and then creativity comes knocking in other way, other than scrapping. This time drawing, painting and inking came calling. I drew a few characters on our relocation trip from Darwin to Jervis Bay. (I will share them in a post soon.) They turned out okay but I struggled with how to do backgrounds to suit, so left them blank and I only had my watercolour pencils as I was limited by what I could carry in the car. So I surfed the internet looking for some inspiration for when I would be reunited with my stash and I discovered Tamara at Willowing she runs online Whimsy Character lessons. The following is my progression on a beautiful mermaid.
