Mermaid II

Sunday Sketches

Just a quick post this week as I’m actually about to start a painting. Do you remember the mermaid sketch I did a while back? Its intention was a layout sketch for a painting for my eldest daughter. Unfortunately, eldest daughter had some reservations about the composition. The octopus got his marching orders and a number of other things weren’t what she wanted, so I’ve revised the sketch, changed its focus and taken a great deal of art direction as to subjects and colours from said eldest daughter. This is the result.

Mermaid 2 sketch

Way outside my norm, but I’ll give it a go. Apparently the mermaid has a red tail, red-gold hair, the clam is yellow, the crab blue along with the blue fish and the starfish is orange. These are my orders 😀

Let’s see what it turns out like.

Don’t forget to visit all the other groovy Sunday Sketches peeps, there is some fantastic talent out there.

See all my Sunday Sketches posts!

Best wishes,
