29 Faces in February, Face 8 Big Eye Mermaid + Gothic Heart Original Painting...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  I think she has a quality of soft mystery in her eyes...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.   I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.  

She is face 8 for 29 faces in February.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.


This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.  Happy Year of the Monkey to you!  I have an original monkey painting inspired by Chinese New Year and the Zodiac here until tomorrow after which I will add it to my website...

This challenge is so inspiring!  I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday

Valentine's Day is coming soon.  I love hearts and expressions of love any time of the year.  "Heart of Darkness" is a 5"x5" textured acrylic painting with a gothic romantic feel, it's one of my favorites of this series.  The original painting and the print versions are available here.
