In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye gothic fantasy painting, I've painted her features and I've been working on her shading. I think she will also have some drips from her mascara, but I've yet to paint that. She will also have very dark hair. I wanted to paint her because I saw sadness with a bit of hope in her, she's a bit different from most of my maidens, but I think it's important to explore at times. 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 an angel fish. I'm looking for fish to hang out in the hair of one of my mermaids, I'm not sure if this one is the one though. He does look a bit lonely on his own, they mainly travel in groups, well, schools... If I do use him, I'll sketch him some other fish to be with him in her hair. Thanks Jennifer for the fun idea! She posts a lot of excellent sketches on her blog here if you'd like to take a look.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May. This is day 20.
This is a rough sketch.
