The Rotund Mermaid

- by Marina Owens

This week's theme: Water and the Things You Find There

Water. It shaped and continues to shape our planet. Earth's first life came from the water and we still depend on it to live. Water is also fascinating and magical. The easiest way to sum up water is some things live in it, some things are attracted to it and everything needs it.


Art: The Rotund Mermaid by Artist Marina Owens
This is how I always imagined mermaids: rotund.
I painted mermaids before, but always featuring their common slim figure. This time I decided to go for it. I wanted to depict her in tranquil and serene waters.
Rich blues and greens deepen and fade all throughout the painting making it a peaceful and pleasant picture to view.
