I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper, using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.
Mermaid Basking in the Sun - was my second painting of a mermaid, the first was set in a moonlit scene. This time I felt like painting a mermaid enjoying the warmth of the sun.
With the earth having three quarters of it's surface covered in water, it makes sense that cultures around the world have myths of mermaids. In general, mermaids are portrayed as beautiful, mysterious and powerful creatures. I'm pleased with my painting, she turned out nicely.
