What do you get when you combine a mermaid, hula hoops and and underwater adventure? Why, you get my latest art project.
My friend Jess commissioned me to design and paint a piece for her that she had been envisioning for a while now. After I mentioned on this here blog that I in fact, paint for others, she signed right up. Such a good friend! Side note – she blogged about it a little yesterday. Go check out this fun post!
So as it goes with any Art on Demand request, I start a discussion with the client regarding everything from color schemes to mediums and size, to their personal design preferences. I take all of this into account and voila – my paintbrush is ready to go.
I present to you…my mermaid. I did this in about 5 sessions and used acrylic paints on a stretched canvas. The final piece can be found in the last two images.
