WIP Lamb Animal Art Original Painting Work in Progress + June Sketches, Sketch 1-3, Angel Fairies & a Sea Dragon...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a lamb, I've started working on his fluffy fur, I still have quite a ways to go.  It isn't showing its true colors in the scan.  When I finish this piece, I'll try to take a photograph of it in the hopes of getting an image that reflects the true colors of the background better.  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:

Edit:  Although not a kitty, lamby is joining Feline Art Friday this week...


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has her hair up and a ribbons and feathers in her hair.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a 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 June.  Due to technical difficulties, I was unable to post until today.  This was day 1.  

This is a rough sketch.

Here is a sketch of a sea dragon.  Seadragons are related to seahorses.  I love his leafy extrusions.  I'm pretty sure I don't have the patience to paint this beautiful ocean animal, but I enjoyed sketching him.

Clever, that you led off with a lamb, followed by complex works

Wow the lamb turned out beautifully. Looks so soft like I can reach in and touch it.
Have a very nice weekend.
