My mermaid assignment for the M3 on ning is finished! I'm really loving the way she turned out. I may add more later as I'm not totally convinced she is finished, but I guess only time will tell.
I call the painting "Tempest" because of the ship entangled in her hair.
It is on an old piece of shelving from our kitchen remodel! The wood made a lovely texture and letting the grain show through really was fun.
Tempest Close Up
Lots of fun cracks and stuff to lend to the aged look I wanted. I struggled with those boobies, but in the end I think they came out fine! Who knew, boobies are so hard to draw/paint!
Ship Close Up
A close up of the ship that I drew based on a vintage embroidery pattern I found on flickr.
Lots of layering and lots of fun! On to the last weeks assignment; fairies and unicorns!

I quite like the ship in her hair.
