A mermaid enjoying the view.
Emily, you have a wonderful style! Isn't it great that there are so many different artists on Epilogue?
She looks a bit perilously perched here, but givewn how peaceful she is she must be more secure than she looks! She is kind of the complete antithesis of the mermaid I just posted -- she is very doom and gloom - yours must be the antidote!
Yes of course, it´s the beautiful Sweden where all mermaids like to be, especially for the wonderful people who are living there! Thank you for the visit Andreas.
Thank you Vera, I think the mermaid likes the background too, she made quite an effort to get this high!
Hi Karl, great to see you,thank you for stopping by.
Is`nt this still Sweden..?
Nice work Anneke. Extremely beautiful background and the mermaid's hair is prfect.
YAY its here...great work Anneke
Thank you for the kind words Eric. I agree with Adrian on the mermaid. It was my first mermaid though, I still have to learn a lot.
Wonderful pic Anneke! I agree with Adrian about detailing the Mermaid more, but I have to say she is still quite wonderful. I love the suroundings as well!
I am happy you like my painting, thank you very much for visiting my mermaid.
Adrian, I agree totally with you! The advice you give on the mermaid is just the thing that bothers me on the painting. I didn't have too much trouble on the background, but coming at the mermaid I got very insecure. I really think I can learn a lot by what you're saying, thank you for your wise words Adrian, I appreciate them greatly!!
Wow, this is really beautiful! I thought I recognized this name, heheh. Didn't know ya had an epilogue gallery too! ^____^ Anywho, I like the sort of subtle look to it, it isn't overflowed with too much detail. Great job XD
I must say you have understood this 'color and form' thing very well. The background here is awesome, perhaps your best one up to date. Even though I risk repeating myself, you really know how to convey situations and atmospheres without going into excessive detail. The rocks and vegetation are perfect, just the water could need some minor tuning here an there (more volume maybe), but considering the difficult task of a waterfall with foam, reflection, refraction and all you definitely succeeded. The only thing I would critisize is the mermaid, she needs to be set off in a stronger way I think, it`s here where I would add more detail. I mean, the entire composition with the waterfalls lead ur eye to the mermaid, so that`s where the focus and thus the highest level of detail would be. For her hair it`s the same as with the waterfall, it needs more volume. And since the sun is shining (?) more lighting on her body would be great. Logically seen, one can conclude that she is on a seperate layer than the background, but because of her rather flat appearance she doesn`t pop out of it enough to create a real illusion of depth. Guess some highlights on her tail (= wet and shiny and shimmering!) and hair would already make a big difference. But after all it`s your picture, you might as well leave it as it is because it`s already wonderful enough. The rocks in the foreground couldn`t look any better, and the overall composition is smart, very interesting with all those diagonal elements. Now let`s forget the technical stuff and enjoy the gorgeous view!
