This week I bring you a real-world watercolor and ink piece that was inspired by a batch of photos I found from a Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art Show that took place more than eight years ago. Our subject was Narin the Mermaid, and during that session I took a few photos that showed the lighting equipment and the set that were part of the shoot, which happened in the basement of what was then the Kanawha Player’s Playhouse. I decided to do a piece based on some of those, playing off the light that was pointed directly at the camera.

Back then, I did digital paintings of Narin from that night which you can see HERE and HERE. This time I wanted to try some real painting, instead of going digital.
