WIP Lamb Animal Art Original Painting Work in Progress + June Sketches, Sketch 23 & 24, Fairy & Mermaid...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a lamb, I've been working on the lamb.  I think I need to do some more work on the background though.  The colors showing here aren't right, but beyond that there are some issues that need to be addressed.  I don't have a title for this one yet, I've been calling it "Lamby" or "Za Fluffy," but I need to come up with a better title than either of those for the piece when completed...


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.  I think she has a caring glance that's full of compassion.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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.  This was from day 23.  I didn't get a chance to post it yesterday due to an appointment.

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed  maiden.  I've given her a shell necklace and her hair is flowing around her.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be an angel fairy or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Hi Lisa
Hope all is wonderful in your life!
I have been been around to visit for a while as life has brought
some hard times and I am not online much!

Love the lamb and all your sketches!

Take care

Beautiful work! The eyes on the lamb are so sweet and deep. That was the first thing that captured my attention on that piece. I'm excited to see what else you do to the painting. Both of your maidens are beautiful. Of course I love your style of eyes on both of them. I enjoy sketching faces too and sometimes I will go back a year later and color or paint them just a little and that is fun too. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Rasz

Thanks so much Stacy and Annie! "Za Fluffy" is more of a working title :), I'm hoping to come up with something better, I hope...
