The Robot and The Mermaid 05 by Boatwright The Robot and The Mermaid 05 by Boatwright
It all started with this: [link]

I had no idea who these characters were, but I enjoyed what was going on. I kept sketching and some what of an idea started to form. Not sure of the specifics, but I know they're friends, and a dead pirate is after her.

This is the second in a series of paintings featuring the Robot and Mermaid that are being displayed at the Davenport and Winkleperry Gallery.

The the pirate has captured them both and has the Robot over a pit of a kraken.

How do you get that bright halo effect? Is that white paint? Is it paint?

I cover the canvas with a couple of coats of gesso. I like one coat to cover all of it as best I can, then a thicker coat to get some nice texture. I did a couple of washes with acrylic paints then for these, I put one or two swipes of gesso on with a pallet knife to create the white "halo" as you called it. Then I pencil it in, use marker and paint and call it done.

How do you make this? Is it paint? On canvas? It looks like someone pulled a dream out through your eyeballs and slapped it on aluminum foil.

Thanks for your enthusiasm over these characters! I feel pretty much the same way.

This one and 04 and 06 were all paint on canvas.

I should probably move their book up in priority once my new one is finished. Maybe with your help we can hit those thousands of favs! :D
