WIP Clematis Flower Art Original Painting Work in Progress + April Sketches, Sketch 23, Fairy Angel...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP clematis flower painting I've painted the stem and leaf and have started blocking in the petals of the flower itself...  The flower this is inspired by is courtesy of the wonderful Shawn Parker Photography.  This is a 5"x7" 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.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed Gothic maiden.  She has sweet pigtails and a slight but charming smile...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, 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 23.  

This is a rough sketch.
