Mermaid & Sea Lion Hand Painted Bracelet

SealionFinal1etsy

This week I finished painting this stunning Mermaid and Sea Lion wood bracelet.  It features a mermaid with a long orange goldfish tail and matching flowing fiery orange hair.  She is reaching playfully towards an Australian Sea Lion swimming beneath the teal blue ocean.

This painting was based on my original pencil drawing:

Mermaid and Sealion

After I sanded the wood bracelet I traced out my drawing design onto the wood using graphite transfer paper.

I painted the background in teal blues and added some dark and light patterns to show the water shadows from beneath the waves.

Then I started painting the sea lion using shades of brown overlaid with washes of blue paint to blend it into the background.

Once I was happy with the sea lion I started painting the mermaid.

The inside of the bracelet is painted in metallic teal paint which has a beautiful shimmer.  The orange of the mermaid’s tail and hair really pops against the teal blue background.
