The idea I was working with was a mermaid that lived deep in the ocean, and had characteristics of other deep sea creatures. Such as being semi transparent, very gaunt, and with little colour. I had originally intended to convey that the mermaid had found a long lost diver's helmet, but as the painting progressed and the mermaid started to look more sinister the feedback I've received is more along the lines of her taking the helmet off a diver.
