Mermaid Glade

Happy Friday! I had some fun this week in between a hectic and fairly dramatic week dealing with getting more work, tax problems, and family issues to paint one of my MerMay sketches, Mermaid Glade, for colour_collective. The color was iris blue. I'm enjoying expanding my abilities to paint backgrounds and settings as well as dramatic light and balancing textures and all that good stuff. I think I just might have pulled this one off.

If there's enough interest, I'll create a poster and other goodies in my Zazzle and RedBubble stores with this art. What do you think?

  1. This is dreamily luscious. I sense both tension at the waterfall drop and calmness at the mermaids contented posture.

    1. Thank you so much, Mirka. Your comments are very helpful and appreciated.

  2. Almost aromatic. Vivid colors that grow forth life. And as a fruit bowl.
