In this original acrylic work in progress WIP clematis flower painting I've blocked in the background with a combination of a texture medium and acrylic paints. I'm not quite sure that I'm done with the background at this point... The flower this is inspired by is courtesy of the wonderful Shawn Parker Photography https://www.facebook.com/ShawnParkerPhotography. This is a 5"x7" painting on panel. I'm still working on my Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos maiden and I'm ever hopeful that I will complete her in time for this Tuesday I hope, but I decided to share the start of this painting today.
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 was very fortunate to win this beautiful necklace through Paint Party Friday. PPF is a weekly blog gathering of artists sharing their art on Friday, it's a wonderful group of people and so inspiring to me! If you get a chance, hop on over for some wonderful art!

Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. She has sweet pigtails and a serious expression. 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 8.
This is a rough sketch.
