I have been working on a project commission by a company in England all summer and creating new works . Each needed be approved by the author and the publisher￼. The author would give me ideas on what she wanted in the scene and I created several sketches before starting any work. For instance, she wanted a Jamaican mermaid sitting next to a treasure chest with coins floating and jewels all around…representing abundance. She wanted pearls in her hair and golden light shining down the water around her. ￼￼
This is the sketch that was approved.
Here is the final painting 48×36″ and will be available for sale during the international launching of the collectible cards in Spring of 2020.
Its been a very intense summer as I had many paintings to complete by an October date. It actually consumed me as I worked long hours and sometimes even evenings. Its good to have the project nearly completed.
