Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Ondine by Danielle Bain

Currently unavailable for purchase

A child of the sea, without a soul and forever a child/fish.

I am curious about the ocean, about the human connection with the sea through evolution. All these dreams, myths and faerytales hint at something much more deeper.
When I swim in the ocean there is a hypnotic silence that complements the raw, wild power of the wind and water.
Although my heart beats rapidly I feel the silence and it’s familiar calming. Despite a gentle yet insistent reminder from my lungs that I need to breathe air, I feel the pull of the ocean.

*I’m experimenting with backgrounds, I’m starting to feel I should move forward with my pencil drawings, imbue some emotion with colour/fabric/textute etc. Any sugguestions would be welcome.

    This is wonderful! If you’re looking for backgrounds I can recommend a freeware programme called Apophysis. It’s excellent – I use it for all my backgrounds.

  • hey thanks for the tip about Apophysis. I’ll check it out.
