Misty Watercolour Mermaid

I started with the idea of creating a spray background that looked like she's underwater. That didn't really work. Then I wanted the bubbles to be swirling around her. That didn't really work either. Basically nothing about this worked except the contrast of all the blue and the brightness of the mermaid herself. So yeah, I really do need more practise with misting. But this piece has found its way to someone that will appreciate her, so that's not a total loss, eh?
