ACEO The Little Mermaid by Achen089 ACEO The Little Mermaid by Achen089
I'm on a roll these last few days! :D
I found some time today to finish the next fairytale in my ACEO series, the (not so happy) Little Mermaid. :woohoo:
I listened to lots of appropriately sad classical music while painting it.

You can see the rest of this collection here -> [link]
And here you can find the sketch [link] .

Pencil,watercolours, 6.4 cm x 8.9 cm.
Based on Hans Christian Andersen's tragic tale of unrequited love of course.

Ισως απο τις πιο ομορφες δουλειες σου... η εκφραση της κοπελας ειναι μαγευτικη... ο πριγκηπας μοιαζει να ειναι μαρμαρωμενος... πραγμα που το κανει πιο δραματικο... Ειναι σαν να βλεπεις ενα ολοκληρο παραμυθι σε ΜΙΑ και ΜΟΝΟ ζωγραφια...

Θα ηθελα πραγματικα να δω το προσωπο σου... το προσωπο της καλλιτεχνιδας... που βγαζει ΤΕΤΟΙΕΣ εικονες...

Ποσταρε μια φωτογραφια σου...

So beautiful, her expression is just perfect and at first she reminded me of Undine.

You've made something so familiar so incredibly sad. I've never looked at this scenario the way I look at it now. It's beautiful. (As is all your other work. :heart:)
