Yippee, finally finished the large (60x80 cm or 23.6x31.5 inches) mermaid painting!!! It's already hanging on the wall in the hallway.
Maybe I will be working on it for just a little bit more in the future, but for now it feels okay for me. 
So here it is!
I haven't used beeswax on this painting (yet). I did use some glass bead gel for the sea, beach and the hair of the mermaids.
Some details:

The story is that both mermaids are in love with the prince, but only one can have him of course. Guess, which one won his heart?! Because I like happy ending stories, there's another cute prince hidden in this painting. The only thing he needs, to turn into a real prince, is a kiss! :D

My next project will be a painting of a fairy, maybe not as large as this one though.
