Mermaid with seaweed butterflies

Of course there are not any butterflies under the sea, however, this the touch of magic that I feel that this painting brings. Featuring a dark fairy mermaid sat under the water, she is amongst the seaweed, simply sat and starting right at you, her beautiful eyes almost looking into your own. This painting features a dark background and I really wanted to make sure that the details on the butterflies had a contrast to them, that would make them stand out. This is why I added a touch of glitter topcoat to them.
