Mermaids In Vivid Colour

The lights that are used at night on the ice sculptures in Confederation Park change colours gradually, lingering perhaps thirty seconds before transitioning into the next hue. Here we have the two mermaid statues in different colours.

  2. The lights are a great idea to draw the crowds back. These are almost more beautiful in technicolor!

  8. Very cool, William! Literally. Also artistically. I've always like mermaids and have always seen them as having two parts. Guess which part I liked best! :)

  12. Personally speaking,. the colors seem a bot harsh and detracted from these beautiful ice sculptures; guess I am more of a purist.

  13. Those look like some very tricky ice sculptures to carve!

  14. The mermaids are fabulous William, I think I like them best simply because they are made from water and live in water... what do you mean mermaids aren't real :)

  24. @Eve: the light placement tends to be below or above or behind... not inside the ice!

    @Karl: thank you!

    @EG: much more of that to come.

    @RedPat: yes, it does change the mood of a sculpture.

    @Norma: now where's that nasty sea witch?

    @Cheryl: thank you!

    @Krisztina: they are.

    @Linda: thanks for stopping by!
