Mermaid painting done in stylist style

At times, I paint with the flow of energy in mind and how would I portray the flow of water. "Treasure" is 24x48 and is a thin gallery wrap. The thinner canvases are actually meant to be framed.

"Champagne" is 20x60 thick gallery wrap mermaid painting. I wanted to keep the warm colors and semi abstract brush strokes yet have some realistic details. The bubbles and little fish swimming around made me think of bubbly champagne.

New Mermaid painting tells a story

"SECRET GARDEN UNDER THE SEA" is 36x48" thick gallery wrap mermaid painting. I had a vision/dream of the actual scene several weeks ago, and stewed about it for days before doing sketches and starting. Then the real work begins trying to realize the original inspiration. As I painted, new ideas arrived like adding the seahorse and more fish. This mermaid is enjoying the beauty and fish as she rests in a seaweed garden. The rays of sun above the ocean stream down on her, highlighting her hair and sandy bottom..

Mermaid painting with touches of jewel colors

After a month of many hours of painting, "Sea Jewels" is complete. It is a heavy gallery wrap that is 36x48" and displays the fantasy of a coral reef and all the brilliant colors within. This is actually a darker painting but with touches of brilliance.

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.

Painting Lesson~ Southern Waterway Landscape

This 40x30 painting in Acrylic started as a daytime scene from inspiration of local marsh. I am enjoying a more painterly, expressionistic styling and using more energetic brushstrokes.

Coral Reef Rhapsody ~ Mermaid Painting

"Coral Reef Rhapsody" is 72 x 48" and in three panels. As I have been painting this for several months on and off, a rather rhymic flow of the water and seaweeds appeared. When I am painting an underwater scene, it is a tedious process and even though I have a sketch that I drew first on paper, as I paint on the canvas, the little surprises occur along with the creative process. It appears to me that the coral and fish are swimming and flowing to music.
