The Little Mermaid

Original size 14"x11" 2014 Lisabella Russo (formerly Lisa Isabella Russo)

When I was a child, I saw a version of The Little Mermaid that was not the Disney version that is with me to this day. I love the Disney version, but it is the one I saw first which I think of most frequently. I've wanted to create my own version of Ariel for a long time. Here she has a slight almost smile as she swims with her seahorse friends... She has big blue eyes and is a redhead. I did a solo study of one of the seahorses here. The art has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel.
