Unicorn and Mermaid
1987/11/15, early digital picture (just 16 colors!) combining figures from unrelated dreams, by Chris Wayan
These were figures from separate dreams. Rather than draw isolated portraits I thought I'd put them together at the one place they could meet: the seashore.
And yes, I think they're lovers, or at least heading that way fast.
I deliberately set myself a severe challenge, trying to depict light in water with such a severely limited palette. Not to mention drawing dream figures from memory, with no models or photos or sketches to go by.
Painting them (I did four versions over months) paid off. It eventually triggered a dream-encounter with the unicorn, who had startling things to say.
