New mixed media whimsy painting – Nereid

Yay! It’s the weekend. I started working on this painting last night, using one of the several layered backgrounds I made during my staycation.
I had no idea what it would become and just let it evolve as I was making it. So it turned out that the painting wanted to be a sea nymph, one who has been living on land and feeling like a fish out of water.

I used acrylics, water soluble crayon and inktense for the main painting, then added paper cut text and shapes painted with inktense to give texture.

Whimsical Rainbow Mermaid Painting

Hi all, I’m now on week 2 of my staycation and the time has just flown by.
I’ve managed to finish a whimsical rainbow mermaid after taking a willowing online class.

Whilst it was drying (on my macbook..oops) I popped out to the London Graphics Centre in Covent Garden to pick up a few art supplies.

I’m loving the Neocolor II water soluble crayons and Golden Fluid Acrylics.
On the way home I popped into the Gilbert and George exhibition in Bermondsey.

And then explored the area for a while, many years ago I lived in a converted loft in Bermondsey and love the historical shabby feel of the area, although like much of London it is becoming ever more gentrified.

Update! A print is now available in my etsy store here
