A very classic mermaid. The mermaid painting is about nine years old, but I so loved the colours that I decided to give it a background and some shading. I thought it would be a nice touch to put her together with manatees, which according to some are the origin of the mermaid-myth. Despite their simple build the manatees proved quite a challenge, but I'm very pleased with the result.Mermaid painted 09-04-1998, manatees painted 08-04-2007.
