Her hair fell in waves

"Her hair fell in waves" Acrylic mermaid painting, 9 x 12 , 2013 on Arches coldpress watercolor paper,

Based on my sketch from sketch Sketch Fest #32 (January, 2013)

This was one of my personal favorite sketches i wanted to finish someday and six months later here it is , is the same sketch i tried painting on a 20x30 foam board (bad idea) of a video still i had shared last week on my
facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Katerina-Art/91520588028
and it went bad so i decided to try it again . The original is so much more prettier than the scan and a bit bigger not by much just a bit - my small 8.5 x 11 scanner couldnt include all of it this was painted Borderless this mean no border around all painted :) i did some changes from my original sketch added more hair (also covers her legs in water ;) ) since i wanted to paint her as a mermaid :) pose reference model http://sinned-angel-stock.deviantart.com/ Original,prints on my website http://www.katerinaart.com thank you so much for looking, sharing or commenting my art feel free to share my art i always appreciate it <3 PS speaking of sketch fest i will be attending sketch fest #40 starts in: 0 days 23 hours and 6 minutes!
