Nereid Goddess + Sea Dragon - original painting by Gretchen Kelly, painting by Gretchen Kelly
19" x 25" gouache, pigment + silver leaf on paper
Another in the series of Nereid Goddesses. I incorporated many design details into this painting- a stenciled background motif and sea dragon from my own imagination who is embellished from head to tail in scrolly florid tendrils with ruffles and beads. That's pretty much how they dress in my sea kingdom. For the Goddess - not much in the way of clothes but a sword and shield are necessary finishing touches in accessorizing this protector of the seas.
