Sofie the Mermaid complete!
Day 3 of 30 Days of Creativity and I have finally completed my eldest daughter’s mermaid painting!
All it needs now is a few coats of final gloss medium and maybe a varnish and it can be hung up in my daughter’s room. Yay! I completed it 😀
Here is a summary of all the in-progress shots I posted up here during the ages it took me to finish this.
The original sketch.
Sketch on canvas and laying down the extra heavy gel for texture.
Painting the hair and the tail.
Filling in the background
Where it got stuck while I was sick last week.
And now complete after the work I did on it this weekend.
Here are some angled shots.
It’s not perfect and I have about a zillion issues with it, but that is pretty normal for me. I have to say end it here, learn from it and on to the next project otherwise I’m never going to get anything finished.
As this project was born in Sunday Sketches back on March 18…yes, it has taken me ages…I’m submitting it finished this week. Don’t forget to go visit all those other wonderful artists over at Sunday Sketches. There is some great stuff over there.
And certainly don’t forget to drop by the 30 Days of Creativity Pinterest boards to check out all the great creativity happening now.
Yay, I did it!
She is just awesome. I love how you have added the gems.

so glad we got to see the finished product … it came together really well and the textures in her tail and hair offset the colour sin the water so beautifully… it is a glorious riot of colour…xx
