Large mermaid tryptic painting completed

"Bella Donna" is three panels of 24x48" gallery wrap canvases that would hang an inch from each other and cover 75x48" space. I wanted to portray an underwater siren with the lighting I have seen while diving. The reflection on the bottom of the sandy bottom reflect up onto the mermaid and sea creatures. I started with black canvases and painted the ocean water with teal and blue sheer metallic paints so its quite a dark painting...just like it would be under the sea.
