I was recently commissioned to paint a piece of artwork for Regent Beauty in Nottingham!
Here’s how I created her:
This is quite a large piece so I transferred my sketch to canvas using a projector. I then decided to roughly paint the outline first and then fill in the gaps with colour. I then painted the final outline keeping some areas rough in the hair to keep to a loose style.
It was lovely to try out another new style. Although she is a little different in theme to my usual art, she still has that mystical mermaid look as if she is a fantasy goddess – and that’s what I love! I am definitely inspired to create more designs like this in the future, maybe mixing in more of a fantasy theme along the way.
You can buy prints of this design on Redbubble
