Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. She is wearing a crown of roses and I believe she has an octopus friend hidden from view with only a small portion of his tentacles showing. I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
If you like bunnies and art and bunny art and you're in the Los Angeles area, I'd like to recommend Intrude. It's giant bunnies by artist Amanda Perer and they're here until Saturday between noon and 9 p.m.. Alex and I went and met some friends there and it was wonderful. However, I took lots of pictures and haven't been able to winnow it down to less, so I doubt I'll be sharing the show until after it closes. Some of the bunnies are in different locations in Downtown L.A separated by around a 15 minute walk...
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June. This is day 9.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
