Mermaid and Circus Paintings completed

The Mermaid and the Sailor - detail

This is the progress of “The Mermaid & the Sailor” painting- I got really carried away with the detail and flow, but enjoyed the meditation and depicting all the beautiful (and sinister) creatures of the deep.

Here it is as a beautiful print for sale in my online shop: “The Mermaid & the Sailor”

I realised after finishing this painting that whilst doing it I had been reading Possession by A.S Byatt-

an extraordinarily moving story encompassing love, passion and the mythology of the Mermaid along with Darwinianism, and Feminist and literary commentary. An amazing read…

The circus painting is also finished… phew…it was entirely fueled by cups of tea, red wine and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and it is my tribute to the Greatest Show on Earth which resides in all of our dreams and imaginings…
The original is a very detailed watercolour, acrylic, red wine,gouache and vintage lace & ribbon collage (you can see it’s progress in my previous posts). Below this is a detailed picture. It has been sold out as a Limited Edition print but you can buy a greeting card Here.

  1. Your artistic journey is neverending/ Your tender strokes fluid, impending/ the new day, the slow time, the dream time/ swoosh, as the water infills.
