Whimsy Angel...er...Mermaid

Another mermaid done for class, although this one turned into a mer-angel. (I should get brownie points for combining two lessons in one painting! *grin*) This one is done in a whimsy style.

I'm working on loosening up and embracing messiness in my painting, however it's hard to know when to stop. I'm hoping that this is something I will learn over time.


  1. I always have a hard time knowing when to stop too Cia :) Some artists say you can never ruin a painting- if you hate it you just paint over it and start again. Not so easy though when you've spent hours on it- I've always had a hard time with that one too! I love this- the fish are fantastic and I don't think I've ever seen an angel mermaid- I think you discovered a new trend! Hope you have a creative weekend :)

  2. Cia, I love this!!! I am really struggling with the mermaid week, but I love what you have done here. :)


  3. This is really beautiful, Cia ! Yes, angels are everywhere :))))))


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a "little" love before you go...
