Shhhhhhh! Redhead Mermaid with Secret

I enjoyed taking the rusty orange colour of this mermaid's hair and carrying it throughout the picture with varying degrees of orange, red, brown or pink. I really limited the palette on this one and I think the outcome is pretty sharp.

I decided to keep the background a clear bright blue to make the orange that more orangey.

You can find her on auction here:

I'm going to get hiccups from all the sudden gasping I do whenever I visit your blog and get treated to a new piece!!

I love the interconnection of oranges, and how it just burns more brightly with the dreamy bright blue background.
