Work in Progress Mermaid with Seahorses Original Painting & Aiko Koi Fish Website Update...



Here is a work in progress view of my 11"x14" original mermaid painting with seahorses.  I've done some more work on the shading on her face, but I'm still working on her eyelashes and lips.  I also see some of her shading that I may revisit as well...  After that, all that's left is her hair, I'd like to have this done by Tuesday, but I'm not sure how much time she'll need to be entirely complete.


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

Aiko Koi Original 5"x7" Painting, Open Edition 5"x7" Giclee Prints, & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

This brocaded koi fish has a heart shaped marking, in Japan koi fish are symbols of love and affection, which is a subject that appeals to me greatly.  This piece is available as an original, as prints, and Limited Edition ACEOs on my website!  

Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!

She is gorgeous already! And beautiful Koi painting. I just learned Koi are specially bred to get those colours. Otherwise they would be just plain carp.

She is lovely and I know she will be even more so when her hair is done. That fish is adorable with it's little heart showing so boldly ♥

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Thanks so very much for the kind words!

Christine, it is interesting about the koi, the decorative ones will revert back to carp colorations within very few generations if introduced to the wild...

I'm so sorry my images aren't working here for you, thanks also for the advice Lorraine.
