My pencil visualization of mermaids disporting in the ocean with a sea creature, suggesting their undulations in the flowing waves…
The car’s seascapes now range in color from deep blue, like ultramarine, to a lighter blue with a green tint faded in. It gives, I think, a dramatic focus in these areas. I foresee the mermaid tails, painted with a range of blue-greens, playing off the background waves’ color to a similar dramatic effect.
Mermaids are said to have no souls in their natural state. And they are, one would assume, cold-blooded from the waist down. I would paint them as such. Show them as graceful and intelligent creatures — perhaps playing and swimming like dolphins — but quite removed from humanity.
Their otherness might even have sinister overtones…..
