Mermaid + Moon - original watercolor portrait by Gretchen Kelly


19" x 25" watercolor, gouache, pigment, silver leaf on paper

This painting started with a live model pose and I was intending for her to transform into a mermaid but I didn't know where else the painting would go. I felt like I was being led to a mysterious place and I think that shows in the outcome. As I have been staring at it for several weeks, I see that I want to do another version of this with some changes.
Sold to a collector in Fla.
