Mermaid illustrations done for new painting

Before the new mermaid painting is completed, I had fun with completing illustrations to see where I wanted to go. At first this siren was bare breasted and with more color in the background. Then as I worked on the details like fish scales and little fish, I wanted to see if I liked a more muted palette. The final painting is nearly done which actually is more detailed and with more blues. I liked these illustrations and am selling prints at www.fineartamerica.com. I actually liked her bare chested but made her more demure. Living in the South, I have discovered that showing breasts is not acceptible.
