the little mermaid -watercolor

watercolor, oil pastel, 2008.5

I just found out one of the pieces I haven't uploaded here on my HD.
the water color version of and

this is a piece I made right after I graduated my collage.
my senior thesis illustrations was Children's book, "the little mermaid"
by Hans Christian Andersen,
and I had a very difficult time to do the senior thesis
since I was in huge slump I've ever experienced
and I hated all of my pieces for the thesis back then.

so I made this piece to make my self feel better about this whole series.
I ended up to make the exact same image with this 5 times though...

here is rest of them

You have done a wonderful job with the blending in the colors and the range you used causes the mermaid herself to stand out. The only thing that withdrew from it for me was the hair; its so puffy and long that it is a very obvious contrast to the other colors, but even still it is a very beautiful painting.

Love your work. Some of them are perfect for a project that I am working on. Please read the following and then I would love to receive submissions from you.

Call to Artists:

License your existing art works and create new commissions from $1000 and up, with no revenue cap to your compensation for ongoing licensing and reproduction of popular pieces.

Project Specifications:
My fellow artists; ladies, and gentlemen; I am managing the supply side ( licensing ) of a new retail fine art distribution program for a well established and still rapidly growing USA based company which distributes world wide. What this means is that I am charged with licensing for reproduction and distribution, over 200 pieces of unique digital and traditional fine art, all to fall within the very broad themes related to “Female ; Character and Figurative” works. Focusing however, on Sub themes of “Fantasy”, “Magna”, “warrior goddess”, “Animation” “Anime”, “Action”, “Comic Hero” “Action Hero”, Ninja, “ Heroine” “ Samurai”, “Villain”, “Angels”, ” Ferry”, “Sports” , “ lifestyle”, etc. , We are focusing in on single character, ¾ to full body figurative works with both simple and complex background settings with an emphasis on young, sexy, and athletic though nothing beyond G & PG rated will be viable. Please keep in mind that our target demographic is female, ages 4 thru 17 yrs.

Business Philosophy:
As an artist and artist rep, I find my loyalties lay with the artist in any licensing agreement and that there is always a way to negotiate an equitable win/win for all parties involved. My philosophy is that the artist should always continue to benefit from their craft to at least an equal degree as the distributor of their work to avoid unfair exploitation of the creative community. As a working artist and former Silicon Valley entrepreneur with significant experience as Sr. Tech Recruiter and Staffing Mgr, Director of Business Development, and Executive V.P. of Sales, I have found that such fairness is easily achieved through diligence in contract negotiation with the goal being a fair and equitable licensing agreement for all.

She looks stunning! I especially love her hair design and the pearls in her head. It gives her a medieval princess look.

Also, her expression is beautiful.
