I finally finished the Rusalka painting. Rusalka´s are slavic water siren-demons. According to some sources there are spirits of ladies who drowned themselves because of a broken heart.
She is accompanied by Zmei, Slavic dragon.
I was inspired by medieval bestiaries. Back then people believed that many of the mythical creatures existed..in far away lands of course.
I´ve always thought rusalka´s were really cool..and really creepy. Watercolor on acid-free watercolor paper. Posters, cases, t-shirts and other good stuff available in my Redbubble store.
Here are more pictures:
