Mermaid Painting Work in Progress + 29 Faces 20...



Here is a bit more progress on the mermaid painting "Looking In" that I am working on.  I'm still working on her face, there's more to do, but she's starting to come together...


Here is a sketch of a big eyed girl with long flowing hair.  She is my 20th face for the 29 faces challenge.  The challenge is to share 29 faces in the month of September.


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

That mermaid is just lovely! What a great idea to let her look through a bull's-eye!
Thank you for visiting my blog!

The mermaid painting is coming along well and I love the circular composition
I think it looks like you are viewing her out of a ship window
Happy PPF!

Wonderful work. I love how you have framed the mermaid. Is the port hole painted on or 3D?

Leovi said...

Wonderful! Great face, beautiful mermaids!

Thanks so very, very much!

www.dorissdaughter.com, the painting is directly on a porthole frame. I found three of them at the Goodwill one day when I was dropping off...
