Here is my latest hand painted mermaid necklace “Sea Mist”.  She is painted with acrylics on a dreamy turquoise, green and brown Sea Sediment Jasper stone.  This gorgeous mermaid necklace reminds me of the mysterious sea and I love the way her long brown hair blends into the spider web patterns of the jasper stone.

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.

SealionWIP1

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

SealionWIP2

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.

“Sleaford Mere” Handpainted Mermaid Pendant Necklace

SleafordMere5insta

Recently I painted this gorgeous Mermaid pendant, “Sleaford Mere”.

Hand painted on a lovely turquoise blue and creamy brown Sea Sediment Jasper with flecks of teal green, this Mermaid Treasures Necklace is inspired by one of my favourite locations on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, Sleaford Mere. Sleaford Mere is a beautiful salt water lake bordered by sand dunes, very close to the coast of Sleaford Bay. The colour of this beautiful lake changes each day, from bright turquoise to stormy green.

This magical mermaid sits curled up, with her arms wrapped around her beautiful long tail. Her tail reflects the colours of the jasper stone and magical stars surround her long wavy blonde hair. Her beautiful face looks towards us, her soft cheeks flushed with pink. This is a truly magical mermaid treasure!

SleafordMere3sml

Pendant height is 6cm (approx.) width 4.5cm. Presented on a beautiful 50cm length beaded necklace with teal, blue, green and turquoise glass and crystal beads, featuring a lobster clasp and adjustable length chain.

Serenity Mermaid Hand Painted Box

SerenityFINALfb0

Recently I finished painting this beautiful green mermaid wooden keepsake box.  This new design was based on my original mermaid sketch from November last year.

Floating3

The box was made of light weight wood and needed some sanding and wood filler – (and more sanding!) before I could start painting.  I used graphite paper to transfer the mermaid design on to the top of the box and started by painting the gold circle background.  The mermaid itself came together quite quickly and I was really happy with the colours and style of this piece.  This is the first time I have painted a mermaid with long flowing white hair with green tones and I think she turned out beautifully.

The majority of my time making this piece was taken up with painting the entire outside of the box viridian green and the inside of the box ultramarine blue, which needed several coats and was a little tricky to paint around the circle.  The inside was also decorated with gold painted starfish and faux velvet flocking, plus a small round glass mirror.  The whole box was given endless coats of high gloss varnish, which took several weeks as I had to wait for the varnish to dry in between each coat!  In the end it turned out to be a stunning little box and will be a lovely place for the new owner to store their collection of special mermaid bracelets and pendants!

Hand Painted Unicorn Foal Wood Box Purse

UnicornFINALFB

Recently I completed another hand painted wood box purse handbag (cigar box purse style), Unicorn Foal.  The design for this painting was based on my original unicorn drawing below.

Unicorn2fb

I traced the outline of the drawing on to the front of the wood box, using graphite transfer paper.

UnicornWIP1

Next I painted the background a beautiful ultramarine blue and started painting the unicorn in shades of white and brown.

Unicorn1WIP

Unicorn3WIPweb

Once the unicorn was complete I worked on painting the background.  The original inspiration for this painting is the very famous medieval unicorn tapestry so I wanted to emulate the tapestry garden around the unicorn, but rather than having a captive unicorn I wanted to paint a unicorn running wild and free!

Unicorn5WIPweb

Once the painting was finished the box was given many coats of high gloss varnish.
