Mermaid painting of darker skinned beauty

"Lailani" is 24x48" gallery wrap acrylic painting that I just completed. My intent to have a darker complexion worked well with starting out with raw umber gesso and working from dark to light. Prints are available soon as is the original. Overall this mermaid is a darker painting than my usually mermaid fantasy paintings and I thought that she dwells deeper in the ocean where it would be darker. She is holding her long hair as fish swim all around her. Hope you enjoy the progression shots.
