Mermaide's Tail Watercolor

 I've been wanting to do more projects on black watercolor paper, but I needed to find a good way to transfer drawings on to it. I finally found away "Saral" transfer paper!

It's very easy to use. You put the paper color side down onto the black watercolor paper. Place the drawing on top of the transfer paper. Use a pencil over the outline of the drawing, apply pressure to get the line as dark as needed.

This painting is from a tutorial by Cinnamon Cooney, the Art Sherpa. I'm terribly excited to show it off. It was such fun to paint with my Fine-Tec pearlescent paints and my Master's Touch metallic paints. Both sets of watercolors work so well on Stonehenge 140 lb cold press black paper.

Thank you Cinnamon Cooney for a wonderful tutorial!
