Sketch of a Big Eye Gothic Angel Fairy, April 15 Art Sketches Daily + Marigold Flowers Original Painting Website Update...



New Art on my website in the floral art section here

"Encantadoras" Original 8"x8" Painting, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

"Encantadoras" is my newest addition to my website.  The original acrylic painting is on a square gallery wrapped canvas.  Two marigold flowers burn brightly against a lush green.  Marigolds are lovely on their own, but they are also a flower loved in Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead festivities.  The art has a soft realist impressionist feel.

I did not paint these this week, but the painting I did finish is my featured original currently listed with my Tuesday auctions!


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!

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.  She seems to have a sad and yet very caring gaze...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April.  This is day 15.   

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
