The last member of my Mermaids collection is Jason, or prince Neptun, as you prefer. He is a merman (obviously in English there is a word for him which is not the case in Slovene language). The girls wanted me to make them some male company and since I never ever painted male portrait I was eager to take the challenge.
There is, of course, this thing I have for men with long hair and a beard but to paint a man like that can be extra tricky. But I'm not scared anymore and here he is in a couple of "ugly" stages and finished.
And finished my pretty blue boy with gentle eyes.
While painting him I couldn't help thinking about how I enjoy myself and wondering if people that will see him would sense that.
