 A mermaid sits in a clamshell in her undersea haven. She has an iridescent tail which changes colour to match her surroundings. It appears she is waiting for someone, I wonder who or what it could be?

Beautiful. I love how you made the light in the water. And her fin is lovely. I like how you used touches of bright red, like in the coral and on her hair.
