Stylised mermaid

I was inspired by the fashion style of presenting this “mermaid”. I added the doodles to represent water and the girl looked so much from the 1920 s  that  I felt the monocle was very much of that time. This painting was done with mixed media on watercolour paper.

Indian girl

1551821150492I started drawing this girl with her hair and then  her face and out of my imagination, I saw an Indian girl appearing. I accentuated her looks  by painting a red dot on her forehead and used dark skin tones for her face. I left the garment flowing as it could be interpreted as a silk gown. I decided on an Indian inspired patterned background.
