13x19 acrylic on canvas

I was compelled to do another painting based of a theme I seem to be following this year; the ocean.

I hated to add a mature content tag to this piece, but the da rules say that if it shows any nudity at all it has to have one :(

Thanks to [link] for pose ideas

And a special thanks to John William Waterhouse who inspires me as an artist.

Much love to this piece. So wonderfully painted. I've been an admirer of Waterhouse for years (made a specific trip to London to go to the Tate... but Ophelia wasn't there :(

Such detail and perfect color blends on such a small piece. You must be a master of the "0" brush!

This is brilliant!

You really managed to capture the feeling of Waterhouse. I love the poses and also the color shift in the small stones.

Good work!

Now i remember! your painting style resembles a great artist from long ago.. i forgot the name but i've seen such art style, colour and all from a book on that artist in a library.. If you lived back then it may as well be you in the book ^o^

This is outstanding and inspiring. When I saw it I actually though, "I Waterhouse painting I've never before?!" You have your own style though, very beautiful. I like how the angles of the birds' wings match the contours of the females' bodies.

The kind of work you do is so hard to find nowadays. Your soft colors, calm subjects, and emotional detail make your paintings truly unique.

This is just so wonderful! I can definitely see the Waterhouse influence, it reminds me vaguely of Hylas and the Nymphs! I love the composition and how everything flows so nicely together! And the colors give it such a wonderful Victorian feel!

While the piece is stunning, I don't find it one of my favorites. I find the arm of the middle siren to be rather thin and at an awkward angle, as well as the arms of the recieving gentlemen.

Forgive me if I'm wrong.
