Mixed Media Monday - Mermaids

This week on Mixed Media Monday Nat is back with a fun challenge for us - "mermaids". I opted for a collage painting for this theme, and this is what I came up with. It is a 6 x 6 inch (15 cm by 15 cm) canvas with LOTS of pieces of collage, colour glazes and different materials for texture (which doesn't show up that well in the scan), etc. This was such fun, I can't wait to do another painting!
