The Mermaid and the Seahorse

At two by three feet, this is the biggest painting I've done in probably a couple of years. I never thought I'd paint a mermaid, but one day I just felt inspired to. I wanted to make the painting look a little whimsical and off so I chose to make the water purple rather than the obvious blue or aqua. I really enjoyed making this one. To get in the right mood, I listened to Daughter, Apoptygma Berzerk, Sia and Temper Trap. Music is important to my painting process.
