Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead Big Eye Art Original Painting Work in Progress WIP + March Sketches, Sketch 25, Puppy Dog...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos fantasy painting, I've done most of her makeup.  I still need to paint in her eyelashes.  Then she gets some shading which I will be attempting to do with glazing.  After that, I'll paint her hair and any touch ups that she needs.  If this weekend were a normal weekend, it's possible I would have her done by Tuesday, but since we'll be celebrating Easter I think it's more likely she'll be done the Tuesday after next...  This is an 8"x10" painting on panel.


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:

I'm also participating in Show Your Face this week.


Here is a sketch of a sweet spotted puppy in a field of flowers.  Dogs are so wonderful and full of love and this little one is no exception.  I probably won't paint him, but I did enjoy sketching him.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March.  This is day 25.   

This is a rough sketch.

Love the sweet little pup! I can't draw animals at all. Yours is adorable. I never even heard of Day of the Dead till I joined up with PPF. It is not something this area does.
