This is an older artwork that I recently found while tidying up my studio. It was done with a Rotring technical drawing pen and watercolour washes.
My first love was drawing in black and white – I love to do intricate detail as a form of meditation, and the Rotring pen provides a nice stable line with a dependable flow of pigment ink.
This lovely drawing depicts the greek myth of Poseidon and Amphitrite, a sea nymph. Poseidon had to persuade her to be his lover, and enlisted the help of Delphin the dolphin god to bring her to him. As a reward, Poseidon turned Delphin into the star constellation we see today as Delphinus.
It is available as a gorgeous archival print here.

I’ve been delighting in one of my favoutire subjects: Mermaids.
I cannot get enough of these sensual fantastical creatures; I am sure most girls at some point in their lives believed they were a mermaid, trapped in a human body….
I’ve been using some lovely 300gsm heavyweight textured watercolour paper to make these little miniature mermaid paintings.
I am also using pen & ink, watercolours from tubes as well as Derwent watercolour pencils for highlights.
I’ve been selling them on Artfinder, a wonderful site where you can buy a diverse range of original art, sculpture and photography, from all over the world. It’s a great way to meet fellow artists, too!
I am also currently working on a study for a new romantic painting of a Mermaid and her Lover….please check back for an update with pictures for that soon ~
