I was inspired to make this piece by just that - the sea!
Its not often I make something like this so it is with some trepidation I am sharing it!
I began with a blank canvas and with glue attached string, shells, netting and art stones before covering in gesso. I then applied various shades of green and blue paint, including the lovely dyna paints by Pebeo.
The mermaid is by Creative Embellishments. I was lucky to win a bumper selection of their products in a competition recently. I applied paint and gilding flakes to the mermaid before attaching.
I am quite in love with this mystical, sea themed canvas!
