Mermen are one of my most popular themes. I think their athletic bodies and abilities, plus their mysterious mythology, make them intriguing but difficult, subjects to paint. I really enjoy experimenting with different possible color schemes. There is no correct scientific anatomical reference to work from, so I often take artistic liberties to make my mermen as sensuous as possible. I spend a lot of time trying to portray the fluid energy, flowing hair and detailing those fish scales.
