The Little Bee Mermaid

Kitty Pimms Investigates Betty Bee
ink, watercolor, and gouache on paper

Every time I paint a redhead I think of The Little Mermaid, this particular redhead especially because I gave her almost precisely Ariel's hue. So if you know nothing about Pushing Daisies, or if you couldn't care less about it, just imagine this as a painting of Ariel decorating a wing of her palace. Eric is busy governing whatever-the-heck country he's supposed to be prince of, giving Ariel a chance to enjoy her brightly-lit study. Hexagons make her think of coral.

And if you also couldn't care less about The Little Mermaid, that means you're either (a) a boy, in which case you're simply going to have to enjoy the painting based only on its artistic merit (bummer); or (b) not worth my time. Seriously, a girl who doesn't like The Little Mermaid? Get out of my sight!

Just kidding, I can forgive you. This time.
