New mermaid painting completed~ Progression of painting

I thought it may be interesting to post the progression of one of my paintings. Of course there are many steps that I did not photograph because I was concentrating and creating as I go. I do start out with a sketch on paper of what I have in mind and then I resketch it onto the gessoed canvas. From their I start layering bacsic colors with thinner paints and gradually build up my lights and darks. The faces of my mermaids usually evolve and change many times.
