Lorelei/Loreley/Loreli, a figure from German mythology. She's a siren from the Rhine river and her singing causes havoc and shipwrecks.
I've already painted a mermaid with a sinking ship
in 2011, but thought that I should be able to do better. And indeed, I like this new version more My gallery will never be kitsch-free...
Face referenced from a 1917 ad from "All American Ads" published by Taschen. Ship referenced from "Old Fashioned Nautical Illustrations" by Dover Publications.
Painted in Photoshop, using a Wacom tablet, as always.
