Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. She is inspired by an image by Gustave Doré for "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." Although she looks a bit like a fairy, the book I found her in is titled "Doré's Angels." I doubt I'll paint her, but I did enjoy sketching her.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March. This is day 31.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
"Sakura San" is my newest addition to my website. The original acrylic painting is on panel. The cherry blossoms are sweet and delicate. This is the third in my series of flowers inspired by sakura. The art has a soft realist impressionist feel.
Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!
