Muirgen

by Ashly Lovett

Titled “Muirgen” meaningĀ “born of the sea” in Gaelic. Created for a tutorial that will be featured in Graphite Magazine‘s July 2018 issue. A mermaid illustration to best demonstrate the use of chalk pastels. It was also a great opportunity to experiment with ideas for my Kickstarter book.

Chalk pastel on paper.
Artwork is 9×12 and double matted with 2.5″ acid free mat.
Artwork will be signed.

Important Note: This piece is chalk pastel and not sprayed with fixative since fixative alters the color. It is double matted and ready to be framed. It will be shipped safely in a plastic sleeve surrounded by cardboard, foam sheets, and bubblewrap as shown.

"My goal for every illustration is to use the character's eyes to really engage the viewer. That is, by far, my favorite challenge. My work is of the horror and fantasy genre, often with a dark romanticism undertone."
