Artwork Description

Another image from 'Endangered Species'. This one is simply a mermaid trapped in a bathtub, many thanks to Kim Maciej who to took the reference photos and worked with me on the rest of Endangered Species. Yes, I am the model for this one, so it's also a kind of self-portrait. I kinda like the wistful film-noir look I have going here.
Mixed Media: watercolours, graphite, ink, pencil crayons and gouache.

Thank you! This one started out as a surreal dream that I was having- that I was a mermaid trapped in a bathtub (I blame the 80's movie 'Splash' that I has just recently re-watched)then I pitched the idea to my photographer Friend, Kimnven and she loved it. When comtemplating a model, she told me to do it, and the rest was history. I think my favourite part was the touch of the running makeup. Thank ou for your feedback- it's very heartfelt and flattering.
