Mysterious Dark Haired Mermaid

Mermaid painting by Justin Gedak

This was created using a combination of photo manipulation and digital painting with Corel Painter and Photoshop from a photo I recently took of my wife.

I wanted the emphasis on her face and messy wet hair, so I made the background and rest of her body more abstracted, with looser brushstrokes.

I've been loving working in this new digital style of muted colors. It's been feeling more and more as if I've finally been finding my "voice" as an artist.
