Water Babies

'Water Babies'
9X12 Watercolor

This watercolor was pure fun to paint!  I loved the photo and was painting it for a friend.  I got the photo from a friend- of her twin grand babies taking a swim.  I loved the perspective- and who doesn't LOVE cute, chubby baby legs?  It reminded me of when my boys were babies, and I enjoyed every minute of this painting.  This watercolor has gone off to a wonderful home, and I am already trying it in a larger size (18X24) just for the fun of it.


  1. This is absolutely precious! I instantly knew what it was and it tugged at my heart!

  2. What fun! I love it when a painting is such a pleasure to create. Looking forward to seeing the larger version too. I'm sure it'll be just as good as this one! :) x

  3. Grande lavoro Sheryl! Splendido punto di vista!! Credo che sia molto difficile riprodurre i bimbi come fai tu!
    Un abbraccio!

  4. What a cool idea for a composition! I love that! You're so creative and have a beautiful style in your work. Your name "Mermaid's Palette" is so befitting what you do! :) (PS I've been wearing my beach glass necklace every day. I just love it!)

  5. Thank you all!
    Claire- I knew when I saw this photo, I had to paint it!
    Pat- some paintings are just fun, and some are more work, aren't they?
    Franz- Grazie! The point of view in the photo was what really got me to paint it!
    Katherine- thank you for you wonderful compliment! I am so glad the sea glass is what you wanted!

  6. wonderful point of view and i so love those chubby legs. it will be amazing larger as well! great work!


Thank you so much for your comments- I love to hear what you think!
