Mother Hulde, gouache and crayons. She is the one who makes snow. She lives in the bottom of the well and when she shakes her pillows, in real world it snows. This year she mostly sleeps on the floor, I belive. Almost no snow.

The Little Mermaid Show

There is one more picture about mermaids playing The Little Mermaid, and while the previous one was rather tricky to decipher,  this one is quite easy. Preparations are finished, now the show goes on! Both pictures are mixed media drawings (or paintings?) in pastel and gouache, I really don’t know what label fits to them but this combination of materials worked well for me and I belive I’m going to use it again.
