Carrying on with a theme again. I found it quite challenging to paint twins last week, I figured I would practice this skill, mermaid style. This ACEO was more complicated for a few reasons.
1. Twice as many faces, flowers and swirling locks of hair.
2. I usually do not do very much of the actual tail, I prefer to focus on the fin as the accent that says "mermaid". To complete the composition, I had to break that rule and do a little more on the sister in the front.
3. I had to paint even tinier than usual. Since we are fitting two mermaids in the frame and more of each one... something has to give. This took a while longer to figure out.
