Having started this piece a while ago, I was delayed in finishing it due to having my back act up for over a week. When I work I like to stand. So, needless to say, I couldn't stand for long periods of time this way.
I'm glad to say that this is on the mend and I finally managed to finish my first mermaid.
I'm really pleased with the way she turned out.
As my husband pointed out...she looks a bit "sassy" with the shorter blonde hair instead of the long flowing hair that is usually associated with mermaids. I have to agree.
I have a feeling there will be other sirens of the sea turning up now and then!
