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.
