Mermaid Stage 2

After letting the painting to rest for a day, I decided not to make any changes to the mermaid's pose. I decided the changes would be anatomically and artistically correct, but it would result in a painting that would be static. It would be ordinary, not invoking any emotion or viewer involvement.

So today's work took me through the most difficult stage of the work. Next will be final touches and underwater special effects including it's influence on the mermaid's hair.

I have demonstrated my decision making process in this painting which included keeping an open mind and not consider a painting a failure, to look at other art to move beyond the ordinary expectations, and to find a way to maximize the painting's potential.
