Marvelous Mermaids

Jane Davenport


Jane Davenport takes artists on a journey through the mysterious world of mermaids, explaining everything from accurately drawing the figure to creating convincing habitats with mixed-media techniques.

The book shows how to draw and paint these sensuous sirens, with their perfectly proportioned figures, shimmering scales and all with the author's evocative instruction touches on every aspect of this fantasy realm:

  • Oceans of Color: Paint beautiful backgrounds in which your mermaids can dwell
  • Go with the Flow: Convincingly draw these sinuous creatures in undulating poses
  • Mermaid Hair Don't Care: Paint the flowing tresses that are every mermaid's trademark
  • Keep Urchin Up: Depict mesmerizing facial features

There are also unique suggestions for making an "upscale" mermaid art journal, a month's worth of creative prompts for Mer-May (or any day) and ideas for stunning collages.
