I’ve been fascinated by mermaids for a long time. On the Clarence river in Iluka sits a concrete mermaid at the end of the fishing boat harbour. She looks out to sea. Created in memory of a fisherman who died, she’s been transformed over the years with different paint jobs and now sports a shiny mosaic tail.
I’ve completed several paintings of her. These 2 are the latest. I the long painting I have shared the stages I went through until I was happy with it. Both are acrylic on canvas.
