KKS Florence Finbottom

I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and spent hours working on this no lines mermaid. I love how she came out and that the background is like bubbles filled in to allow there to be lots of white space. I did not keep track of the coloured pencils used for this one as I just kept layering and colouring and did most of it outside enjoying a fire.
