Artist's description:

This charcoal pencil drawing of a mermaids eye complete with protective membrane was done on Fabriano watercolour paper. It was a challenge to do as the face shape and skin texture are different to ours- they also have no hair. This drawing is part of an ongoing project with a friend to rework mythological creatures in a way that works.

The really fascinating thing is that when we started looking at all this from a scientific point of view - location, distribution, feeding and mating habits then building the anatomy - so many of these fantastic creatures suddenly became much more plausable.

Framed in oak with acrylic glazing so it is safe to ship.
