Aqua, a sweet little mermaid slumbering in the waves. I love the colors of this painting.
I did some traveling in September, visiting family in Oregon. I had a wonderful trip, and it took me a week or so to wind down and get back to work in the studio. This week, I got back to my paintings and this painting was still sitting on my easel, almost finished. She seemed to be calling to me… 🙂 Finish me, please!
Here are a few pictures of my creative process.
My original sketch The background is painted and then I sketched in the mermaid with charcoal.
Finished painting with a bit of tulle that I had in the studio.
Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
