    Hi Mike, thanks for the compliment!

    Using Prismaclor oil and Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils, but still have a few Spectracolor (Faber-Castille) pencils about the place – they were discont’d a few years ago so they’re very precious. Broke my heart when they stopped making them.

    Maya the mermaid swam through the deep
    wanting to find her love
    The current was strong and her heart so low
    but her strength was flying above.
    So she swam and she swam till her strength was no more
    and she was just about to end it all
    When all of a sudden from behind a big rock
    Maya found her love named Saul.

    This is a lovely pencil work of this mythical lady, Jude.
    Almost has a Hindu look about the art.
