A couple of weeks ago one of my blog readers asked if I was done with mermaids....
The Gaelic word for mermaids is ceasg
this means maiden of the waves.
I love this description!
The ceasg has the body of a woman and the tail of a salmon, and she can grant her captor three wishes.
My ceasg started off like this...
The 3D effect is moulded paper clay which I painted with acrylics and fixed to a collaged wooden panel.
twisted paper hair is added.
I think she looks rather sad, or perhaps wistful?
BiG thank you for all those who commented last week about photographing light reflective surfaces. I photographed the finished mermaid outside in the evening and I think the colours are pretty true to life, your wonderful advice helped!
