  1. It’s not easy with portrait or figure work to get the whole thing singing the same melody.
    All of her is wonderful but the face is harsh. I say this not to be critical, but it reminds me of the point when I was starting portraits and deep in that ferocious struggle, and I came to greatly appreciate Rodin and Caravaggio and all the rest who made things work from stem to stern.
    The mermaid transition from legs to tail is splendid, and the lovely thing she’s resting on. I love that she found her way to shore.

    1. I thought something was off, and at first that it just may be out of focus, but I’m sure your right. Thanks for your professional observations, as always. 🙂
