MERMAID PAINTING IS COMPLETE

I think I have finished the Mermaid painting I showed you a couple of posts back. I have added a few little fish to it but, I keep thinking it needs something else, maybe that's just me. It would be great if you could let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions.

OH, she's GORGEOUS!!! The fishies are a perfect touch. I think it looks great as it is but, if you decide to add anything more, I'd probably suggest a hair decoration?

love,
mum xo

Your mermaid is beautiful and looks so full of joy!! I love painting mermaids too! I think the picture looks great to me and everything is very balanced. But when Serena mentioned the hair decoration I have to agree that that would look good too!!
Wonderful work I love your style!!

Serena took the words right out of my mouth.

I think she is lovely as she is, but I was thinking something tucked into her hair near the ear would be cute.

a hair decoration is a good idea :)

Your paintings are lovely
I agree with your mum? she looks lovely as she is.. Maybe an earring or bindi [sankrit dot on the forehead].

She's lovely Michelle! Serena's suggestion would look good too but like she said, she's perfect as is!

I like this very much, Michelle! Maybe you'd like some small shells for her hair...or in the sand? But she's already darling.

BumbleVee said...

how 'bout some little gold highlights on her hair or a couple of the fishies? ..or both...?

melissa said...

She is delightful as is! Maybe adding something sparkly, shiny or iridescent as an accent would be fun?

Michelle...she is a DOLL! Cute! Cute! :) I love her as she is, but maybe a hair decor of some sort. It's up to you. :) LOVE IT!

Michelle, She is absolutely precious! The fish are a excellent addition. So cute. They really help make her "float". Beautiful as usual!

Hi Michelle,

The Mermaid turned out lovely! It is great as is but if you decide to do what your mum said about a hair decoration maybe a starfish would look cute on her hair. I would also add a bit of glitter to her tail. :)

Michelle Eaton said...

Thanks heaps everyone for your kind words and lovely suggestions. I will post a pic once she is complete :)
