Blue Men of the Minch, pen, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.
My theme is "Uncharted Waters", so I've been drawing mythological water creatures. This time I drew the Blue Men of the Minch. The come from Scottish mythology and are said to cause shipwrecks and storms. They are a little like merpeople .... except they're blue! They can be outsmarted by clever sea captains by either answering a riddle or speaking in rhyme and making sure to have the last word.
I had fun drawing the beards... I guess you can tell!
