Mermaids by xxLulu Mermaids by xxLulu
I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO PUT THIS.
DeviantART needs to redo their categories. Where the hell do mermaid paintings go!?

Anyway.

Newest oil painting for class, using only the palette knife to apply paint. That thing is a bitch to use, making it virtually impossible to do details (like facial expressions, or sparkly mermaid scales). But impressionism is awrite.

This is beautiful! I love the merging of the real with the mythical. It has such a dreamlike quality to it. The mermaids seem transfixed by the boat.
I'm very jealous of your skills with oil paints (especially using only the palette knife :blowkiss: ). You're very talented, and I hope to see more works like this from you soon! :hug:

:]] o rly? why, thank you. It means a lot to hear kind words like this. :heart:

What exactly would you like to see; is it the fantasy that appeals to you? Fantasy is always fun.

I do enjoy the fantasy, but also the imagination, the dreamlike state, and the wonderful paint technique!
Everybody needs more kind words these days. It's what makes the world go round, you know.
Please keep up the good work! :hug:
