Mermaid by a Cathedral Original Painting Work in Progress...




Here is a work in progress image of my mermaid by a cathedral.  I resolved some of my issues from the sketch, which is a few posts down; but in putting this up I see something else that needs fixing.  For some reason when I look at an image on the monitor, I sometimes catch things that I don't see when I have it up on the easel or in my sketch book...

I finished the oak tree painting I was working on last week for Nibblefest, it's on ebay here and it's also a few posts down if you'd like to take a look.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

I think it's looking great Lisa! I understand about seeing things on the monitor and not when you are looking at the painting. Many of times, when I take a picture of my art and look at it for the first time on the computer, I go back and change things! LOL! ;o) Take Care ;o)

Good beginning, Lisa. I know what you mean about how different things look up on the screen. Strange, huh?

can't wait to see where you go with this one! it's funny how looking at your art on the computer gives you fresh eyes. It happens to me all the time!

A mermaid and a cathedral - that is interesting! I imagine the cathedral being flooded many centuries ago and covered with mossy things...

Annabelle said...

Quite an interesting and mysterious beginning, I look forward to seeing the progress on this painting.
Very true about looking at your art work on the monitor, many times it 's caught mistakes I've missed while working on the art piece. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks very much for your kind words and input on my mermaid painting! I want the cathedral ruins to be underwater, so maybe I'll add a fish or two. Maybe not, I'm not sure where I'll put them, but I'll think about it.

She looks so elegant already so I can't wait to see what she looks like when she's done. And I love the concept of a mermaid cathedral.
