Painting by Kathryn Morin
Original Materials: Watercolor, Ink, Digital
Tender thoughts drift away quietly, but I'll follow them to the depths of the ocean.
This listing is for a print of the original painting by Kathryn Morin. Please see below for size and edition details.
Inspired by feelings of silent distraction, this is my first completed mermaid picture. I sketch mermaids all the time, but this is the first one to make it completely through the process of sketch, ink, and paint. Techniques used in this painting include layering and salting the water. While the paint is still wet, I'll drop pinches of salt onto the paper, let it dry, and then gently brush the salt off. The salt will absorb the paint while its wet and when brushed off, leaves an intricate and natural texture.
What inspired you?
While I respect the question, I typically refrain from answering directly because I prefer not to cloud your personal interpretation. Instead, each print comes with an Informational Card, to give a glimpse at what I was thinking in the moment of creation.
