Part of your world by Laiyla
Part of your world
a painting I made inspired by the fairy tale The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. 
The Little Mermaid longs to rise from the watery depths of the ocean up to the light and warmth of the sun. 
I tried to incorporate a little bit of the green/red scheme in the Disney movie by adding subtle shades of red and green to her hair and tale, while still remaining true to the original tale. 
The original is extremely sparkly. I used a lot of iridescent Daniel Smith watercolours throughout the whole painting. 
I hope you like it!

I had a wonderful photoshoot yesterday. The model was only 11 years old but she was amazing, her poses were so natural and graceful! I hope she likes this first photo.
I think she is going to get far if she wants to pursue modelling.
This is actually three photos in one. I shot the model, the background and the wings separately.

Model: Jikke
MUA: Ria Kooijman

Hi everyone!

As you have probably noticed I'm not that active anymore on DeviantART.
I recently did a move to Facebook and won't be posting here often anymore.

If you want to keep in touch with my costumes, click here:…
and for my drawings and paintings, click here:
For my blog and photography, you can visit

I will be posting regular paintings, sketches and overall ramblings on my art page. I don't model that much anymore so my model page is a bit more inactive but I do post there every now and then and you can watch my portfolio there.

I hope to see you there!
