Ok, ok, so its not the real Aqualonde - apologies to the Tolkien lovers out there. I just love the name! Aqualonde is part of the Bifrost 'World of Water' project. While a mermaid is not the most original idea for this subject, I had just completed this painting as a gift for a friend and thought she may be appropriate to add. I used the 'Chux' technique on this one, which accounts for the strange textures you may pick up on her body, tail and hair.
