The title “Mermaid-Mystery or Myth !” is coined because of the enigma concerned with Mermaids. Mermaid is a legendry aquatic creature with head and body of female human and tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Many Medieval sailors claim to have sighted them which however has been speculated to be normal marine creatures that are now extinct. My inspiration for this painting has been the beauty in the depiction of mermaids which is the focal point with the sea bed to compliment her. Painting Coral reefs and fishes has been a delight since it offers scope to splash colours in various patterns.
