Artwork Description

Do these lovely mermaidens, sunning on a rocky boulder, spy an interloper amidst their private stretch of sea cove? (This image was created using watercolor, acrylic, pencil, guoache, pen and ink.)

Thanks, Lindsey

Wow, this is gorgeous! There are so many details and they are very well done! You put all those mediums together perfectly!

Thank you for your message and the kind words. Oof, it did take awhile --and not without a little 'hair pulling' on my part from time to time either....!

My goodness. This is my first time looking at your artwork. I'm impressed! So much detail, must have taken quite a while to complete this piece.

Hey - I made it! It was worth the wait! I love your treatment of the water and the expressions on the mermaids are fabulous. Just waiting for the unsuspecting sailor to snatch - oh, wait that maybe him right now.....

They all look like they are daydreaming. Of what, or who I wonder? I like this one too.

This is what art is all about, getting the job done by using any and all means possible, maybe even taking liberties with a little bit of magic too, cause there is definitely some kind of sorcery going on here, your work is totally spellbinding, lovely mermaids in a lovely sea on a lovely piece of art,Brilliant!

Thanks, Dan. Yes, for their expressions, I wanted them to look bored. Very bored -- except something in the distance has JUST caught their attention....

You did a great job of melding all of those different mediums. I like the expressions on their faces, very serene.

Thanks for the kind comments, Beth. It was nice of you to stop by! Yes, as you can see I am an intricate detail freak. Oh, and congrats to you on tieing for 3rd in the Duirwaigh art contest with 'Summer Oak'!

Thank you, kind guest! My mermaids are on the scaly side aren't they. And, they have 'fins'! Painting them was a lot of fun.

Thank you, Meredith. I played with that for a long time (quite a bit fiddle faddling until I was satisfied).

Such intricate detail! I love all the contrasting textures you've acheived from the fine hair to the soft floating clouds. Excellently done.

Your mermaids are soooo exotic looking! Those scales are wild! You really know how to spice up a drawing. One more little detail like webbing between their fingers would really set them apart from the norm!
