Mermaids of the Deep Blue Sea

This piece is simply inspired by mermaids and the ocean. I created a photo collage from vintage photographs of dancers and a beautiful ocean scene. I graphed the image onto a large canvas.

Layer 1: I did Raw Umber Wash over the drawn image. Then I sculpted the image using a soft cloth by focusing on the spectrum of values.

The next step is to paint the image with a monochromatic palette. I will use raw umber from Old Holland and white.
