WIP Gothic Fairy Angel Big Eye Art Original Painting Work in Progress + April Sketches, Sketch 23, Butterfly...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye gothic maiden painting I've painted her eyes...  Next I'll be moving on to her skin tone in her neck and shoulders and then her face.  I don't always know the title in advance, but she will be titled "Pandora," as I see in her sadness mixed with hope.  She is likely a fairy angel.  This is an 8"x10" painting on gallery wrapped canvas.  


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:



Here is a sketch of a butterfly happy ensconced in a flower's core.  I'm so happy when I see butterflies, they're so delicate and beautiful and sometimes they take my breath away.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April.  This is day 29.   

This is a rough sketch.
