a new mermaid


I have not painted a mermaid in ages. actually, I haven't painted, period, in a ages! This is a custom mermaid for SASessories via a trade on etsy. I am getting a couple pairs of her beautiful earrings in return. SASessories wanted the mermaid to have red hair and to be curvy, that's what she's getting. I was delighted to try some new techiniques that I've picked up on & never had the chance to use. (ex. purple shading, tiny scales, using hues of red and make some of the hair look farther away than others, a new way to do the face, the background, etc). I am so happy with how this piece has turned out. I wonder if prints would sell on etsy...
