Renovating an Old Painting and A New Completed Painting

Completed a daily painting of a mermaid taking a nap. It’ll be for sale once it’s dry.

And transformed this old painting (which I already loved)

into a mermaid. I deepened the dark places, brightened the whites, warmed up here skin that was above the surface to give the painting more depth, and of course, I added shining scales.


I TOTALLY dig her. Gotta be honest, this is one of my favorite paintings that I’ve ever done and I considered keeping her. That’s how I know she need to be adopted though.
