I would appreciate any advice you can give on this painting. I think the water will be very tricky to capture. I want the view to be partly underwater and I’m struggling with that a bit.
Any advice on how to make this better would be appreciated.
This painting is for my sister who wanted a portrait of herself as a mermaid. Im also planning on using this as a portfolio peice.
Ive attached some of my references. I wanted to use the parrot fish as a reference for the colors of her tail and also the photo of my sister.
Thanks in advance.
