Mother and Child Art a Mother and Daughter Mermaid painting

Mermaid Mother and Child

I have been wanting to paint a mother and daughter painting for years, but it took my beautiful friend Angela Yender’s gorgeous story of a mermaid mother and daughter to finally awaken the inspiration.

Her story depicts so beautifully the eternal bond between mother and child, and here I have expressed that love as these two embrace one another, tails entwined, in a watery realm that is evocatively dreamlike.

It is a watercolour painting, my favourite medium which always manages to convey a sense of the ethereal. Of course, it has my love for the Art Nouveau style flowing through the details; hair and water swirl around the pair in aquas, lilacs and soft pinks and browns .

It would make a very unique and original Mother’s day gift! ~ It is available for sale as a quality archival giclee print, from my online shop: LizaPaizis.com

Miniature mermaid paintings in watercolours and ink

I’ve been delighting in one of my favoutire subjects: Mermaids.

I cannot get enough of these sensual fantastical creatures; I am sure most girls at some point in their lives believed they were a mermaid, trapped in a human body….

I’ve been using some lovely 300gsm heavyweight textured watercolour paper to make these little miniature mermaid paintings.

I am also using pen & ink, watercolours from tubes as well as Derwent watercolour pencils for highlights.

I’ve been selling them on Artfinder, a wonderful site where you can buy a diverse range of original art, sculpture and photography, from all over the world. It’s a great way to meet fellow artists, too!
