Sketchfest – Gilt Mermaid/ Nixie
This is a painting I started out in Sketchfest, and for once turned into a finished painting. I was trialling new paper and wanted to have a crack at gilding. A Nixie is kind of like a mermaid, being a female water spirit, though she tends to be linked with springs and lakes rather than the ocean. They also can have wings or a serpent tail. I kind of leave it up to your imagination :)
This is my first attempt at gilding. The next one I hope to try some silver leaf on!
