WIP Gothic Latina Fairy Angel Big Eye Art Original Painting Work in Progress + 29 Faces, Face Sketch Art 26...



In this original acrylic work in progress gothic Latina fairy angel painting, I've blocked in her hair and worked with some shading...  I still need to do a bit more shading on her top, cast a shadow on to her wings, refine her hair, and paint the flowers in this wip.  I also realized that her wings are uneven, so I need to try and correct that.  I did the rough sketch for this during the 29 sketches challenge last September.  I don't get to paint all of the faces inspired by the challenge, but I do get to do some of them...  I was hoping to finish her for last Tuesday, but there's still quite a bit more to do, I am however optimistic for the Tuesday coming up...


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.

 I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

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

She is face 26 for 29 faces in February.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.  


This is a rough sketch.

4 more faces to go and you have succeeded :)

would have never noticed that wing difference if you had not mentioned it, the wing patterns hide it :) its looking good :)
