WIP Gothic Big Eye Fairy Angel Art Original Painting Work in Progress + May Sketches, Sketch 6, Happy Kitten...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye gothic maiden painting I've been working on her ever so pale skin...  Next I'll be moving on to her eyebrows and eyelashes.  I haven't decided yet if I'll do her eye makeup before her lips, I'm hoping to do something quite interesting with her makeup.  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 big eyed kitten.  This cat seems to be very pleased.  I doubt I will paint him, but I did enjoy sketching him.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is day 6.  

This is a rough sketch.

Amazing eyes Lisa, she's going to be absolutely stunning. I can't wait to see her progress. It's like she's slowly coming alive.
The cat certainly looks like he's had the cream!

Ooh, the eyes - wow - so big and beautiful and deep. I love their turquoise color.
The kitty is very cute. I love the idea of doing a sketch every day and I am definitely working on that, because practice really makes you improve a lot.
Happy PPF on a Sunday!
