I’m very pleased to reveal to you the finished product of my two-week-long project painting a scene from “The Little Mermaid.” I fixed Ariel’s face and now she no longer looks like a red-headed Keebler Elf, which is always a good thing. Actually, she is looking pretty sexy if I do say so myself! 😉
Below the painting I added a close-up shot so you can see the beautiful colors and characteristic textures as they were meant to be seen.
But first, here is the initial sketch again, so you can see just how far I have come!
A Part of Your World 18×24 inches oils on canvas
I’m super proud of this painting and I feel like it captures the true excitement and spirit of the film! But I really made it my own which was a special experience for me, seeing as the animated film is one of my favorite movies of all time!
I hope you guys had fun coming along on this adventure, and I’ll be sure to post some pictures of my next project. My next BIG project! I will be painting an underwater coral reef scene on a 30×40″ canvas, the biggest painting I have ever attempted so far in my young career! It will have dolphins, reef fish, sea turtles, a shark, a manta ray, and an orca!
It should be very epic indeed!
I hope all of you are doing well and creating some awesome art as well, writing some great content for your blogs, and just plain having an excellent week!
Let’s bring some color into the world!
