A piece I finished quite a while ago, actually. Revisiting the mermaid theme. Same image, painted. It didn't actually turn out as good as I wish it had in terms of imagery but I was really happy with it technically. Fucked the shadow up big time, used black and then realized I'm never supposed to do that, so I peeled it off and painted over it. Hey, at least I'm honest about it. Interesting texture, though.
This is probably the longest amount of time I've spent on a single artwork, 45 minute session average daily for about 2 weeks adding up to maybe... 6 or 7 hours? A lot of that time was painting over it and trying to get the colours that I wanted. Actually mainly done as a technical study, I wanted to see how fine my brushwork could get in one go on a micro scale. I might redo this later in the year on a way bigger scale (A1 at least, this is A3).
Title is the original Danish title of "The Little Mermaid". The tragic one.
