And thus she rose from the sea, beautiful and wild, both human and animal, wearing the skin of a seal.
Finished! Her face looks much better now. It’s interesting to see the difference between the sketch and the painting, too. Previously, her expression was more weary and mysterious, but now she looks a little more curious and hopeful. Welcome to land, little selkie!

This lovely book made me strangely knowledgeable about faeries and spirits as a young child. My mother bought it in the year of publication.
