What Do I Do With These? by Kir Talmage

What Do I Do With These?
by Kir Talmage

Prompt: Mermaid with Fairy wings
prompted by: Heather Mitchell, during Sketch Fest #38 (June, 2013)

Really fast pencil, slower PITT brush pens (just to mess with them; I don't "get" them yet) and then Faber Castell watercolor pencils, unpainted. The real pic has richer/better colors. Of course... I need more photo/scanning gear and clue... I say that every time... About 5.5 x 8.5 inches.


Heather Mitchell says: cool twist on the prompt! ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thanks! I got to thinking, "but what _would_ a mermaid do with wings?" Of course now I have this sort of air-maid thing floating around my brain... flying fishish or zepplinish or I'm just not sure what.... **laugh**
     Kir Talmage replied to this: My daughter is asking, "why is she sad?" and then when I explained I thought she was confused, and asked her, "what would you do with fairy wings if you were a mermaid?" she said reflectively, "Put them on the rocks so they could dry and someone could fly with them. It takes a lot of practice you know." (She's 3 and a half! **delighted**)
