Artwork Description

I've always wanted to paint a mermaid...so here it is, my first. Unfortunately it's too big ( 16 x 20 on canvasboard )to get a decent scan, so I'll give a couple of details shots to show...well, the details!

This is one of my favourites Frans. It still hasn't sold yet, so I will be able to enjoy it for a while. I had fun deciding which shells to paint and thought the clear balls would add a magical touch to the finished piece!

I wonder what this young mermaid would be thinking about.... I like this painting as it lets me dreaming about a lot of things
Wondeful colours as there is a perfect harmony between the mermaid and the environment iurrf

Thank you very much! She is my first, but I would like to try again. In here I wanted to give the impression of a vast ocean that is her home. Next I would like to get up close and personal. Thank you again for commenting.

I just love this painting... the enormous amount of details you put in it, as well as the color palette, movement and composition... Lovely!

Marilyn, very nice mermaid. I like the flow and composition. Using the warm colors in the upper part of the sea was a good way to unite the overall palette.

Art at its best.
