A new mermaid!

Just finished my latest mermaid from Suzi Blu's La Sirena workshop! You can still join this workshop over here and now even with a discount of 10 USD! Today I saw that student number 500 signed in for this class! 500!!!

My latest mermaid is a large one: 12x24 inches (30x60 cm.). For me this is large because I prefer to work on small surfaces. I think I did okay for a first time. At first I wanted to add a lot more stuff in the background but then decided that I wanted to be the tail the vocal point of the painting.

After I had put beeswax on the hair it looked a bit dull and that's why I put some golden accents in the hair.

If you look very close you can see some shimmery stars in the background (the middle sized ones). They were send to me from the USA by another student at Suzi's: Kimberly Ward. You really have to go and see her artwork in her Etsy shop over here. She's very talented!

Mooi Anniek! Die glim-accenten in het haar en de sterretjes maken het helemaal af!!!
