30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 12 – Beneath the Surface

Day 12 of 30 – Title: Beneath the Surface.

Mermaids have always been a favourite subject of mine, one I’ve often revisited and will continue to do so. This one is curious, she wants to know what’s behind the glass.

This small painting comes ready to hang in a beautiful 11″ x 8″ frame. Beneath the Surface is painted in gouache on canvas paper and measures 4″ x 6″.

She is available for adoption, just like the button below.

    She looks so real; her face is familiar, and the colors and elements adorning her give her a north, cold mermaid look. <3
