A Beautiful mermaid hiding behind a sea rose...</b>

Limited Edition Prints (out of 9 ) on my website 6.00 each

My aceo is dedicated to my beautiful friend and model
of this artwork my kind sweet friend Nina :hug: :heart:
:iconninazdesign:
I loved this pose of nina [link] even though it was turned sideways, i sketched a couple of ideas out and decided on a portrait i wanted to focus mostly on the eyes which i love drawing and to give it a more of a mermaid feeling i added a rose and some green/bluish tones on the skin (which my scanner didn't do much justice picking them up) and loved painting the freckles :) i think i may have gone a bit overboard with them :)

completed with color pencils and gouage.
Hope you like it :)
Thank you for looking :hug:

the colours in this are unconventional for a face its true but you pull it off so effortlessly - the flowers compliment her so well and her expression is so appealling, her eyes are intense but without any threat, absolutely stunning!

I've admired this for a while, but I don't know why I haven't faved it yet. It's so lovely :heart:~! The colors you used are perfect, and the coloring itself is well-executed. That's the best way I can describe it in words ^^; Because this is prettier than words, really.

Gorgeous, I love the monochromatic color scheme, the eyes are very intense. Yellow roses are my favorite. And the freckles are beautiful, too. What's gouage, may I ask?

:iconkaterina-art:
Katerina-Art Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
thank you so much :hug: ofcourse you can ask :) gouage is a meduim just like watercolor :)
i buy a very affordable brand called REEVES, unlike watercolor ,with gougae you can lay lighter color over dark, i mostly use it to seal my color pencil work and i like to use it over my pencilwork,sometimes i may use it as a base and then use color pencil on top :)

I like your colored works, this is really pretty. Are you blackmore's night fan? you seem to listen behind the sunset. I love listening them while painting:)

Katerina-Art Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh yes I'm a big fan :) i love listening to them too when drawing/painting :) i love their beyond the sunset CD i also have their other CD's as well :)
I think candice has a beautiful mellow voice and richie black writes amazing songs :)
one of my artworks Ghost of a Rose is very much inspired by their song :)

I've seen the band twise. Once in Paris and once in Copenhagen. I had so much fun.
I have two works inspired by their songs.
