Fiji Mermaid Nursing Fish

Yeah, it occurred to me in the middle of painting this that fish aren’t mammals, they don’t nurse. And Fiji mermaids–apparently a hoax perpetrated by P.T. Barnum sewing monkey and fish corpses together, or something like that. Mine looks more like a shrunken head. Which may be the subject of my next watercolor. Other than that, I love the way these pearlescent watercolors I found at NY Central are working out. It doesn’t really show up in the scans, but everything shimmers.
