Mermaid in octopus arms

When I started to create this Klimt mermaid with the octopus arms, I knew that I wanted to ensure that it capture the weightlessness of ocean life. The mermaid, a realistic image, is surrounded by a variety of amazing colors and shapes, just as she would be in the sea. The design may be abstract, however the details have been finished to ensure that they look glittering and sparkling, just as they would under the sea. The arms of the octopus is decorated with gold leaf, which makes sure that it stands out.
