WIP Lamb Animal Art Original Painting Work in Progress + May Sketches, Sketch 13, Fairy Angel...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP lamb painting, I've started work on the background.  This is my second layer, but definitely not my last.  I sort of like what's going on on the top portion of the background, but I want it to be a little warmer, to better compliment the lamb.  One of the lovely things about acrylics is how quickly it's possible to make changes...  This is an 8"x10" 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.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She seems to be staring at something with great interest.  I loved her cute hair style...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be an 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 May.  This is day 13.

This is a rough sketch.

I just love acrylic to work with. You can play with layers and working quickly is my style. I just don't have the patience for oils! Loving your girls eyes.

Great goal to sketch every day this month. The maiden is captivating. No need to paint her until the sketch longs for color. Love the lamb too! Have a lovely week.
