The original paintinf of the Turquoise Mermaid is particularly special because it has been painted using acrylic metallic paints by artist Justine Haycox for Gateway Art Sales' Mermaids Collection.  This means, that as the light catches it, the scales on the mermaid's tail give a shimmery effect.  Every body loves a bit of shimmer and it really brings the painting to life.


We love the Turquoise Mermaid painting as its the only one in the collection which has black hair, which is a stark contrast to the mermaid's pale skin.  The turquoise is a lovely calming marine-life colour and compliments the mermaid's sealife pals - the seahorse and the fish.  


This painting would look perfect in a little girl's bedroom who loves fairytales or perhaps already has a mermaid theme and we think little girls will particularly love the shimmery effect from the paints used.

The artist has signed the painting and the its accompanying certificate of authenticity.  It is ready for framing.  It has been professionally double mounted, using a turquoise inner mount to draw the eye to the mermaid. It is presented in a cellophane wrap for protection and would make a lovely gift for a lucky little lady. The Mermaids Collection comprises four other coloured mermaids in pink, orange, green and lavender and each has their own distintive hair colour. Pick your favourite.

Viewings of original artwork can be arranged prior to purchase, but only in the UAE.
