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.
