Fabulous! It took me a moment to see the mermaid, she was so well camouflaged! Great use of brown!


Lovely! Your mermaid looks so blissful! Brown isn't a color I would choose either, but you've done wonderfully with it!

This is wonderful - there is something about the colors and the composition that reminds me of a Salvador Dali painting :)
