MELLER, Peter

Description

Mermaid with Mirror
Meller could use markers in almost as many ways as he used pencils. Here he indicates the outline of the figure with a blunt-tipped pen by quickly filling in the surrounding space, then uses a fine-pointed one to suggest, with a few deft touches, the details of face, hands, and body. He uses common correction fluid to adjust the curls of the hair. - Eden Slone
