In this original work in progress WIP painting of a rose, I'm trying a couple of different things. I'm painting on a wood surface and I'm using oil paints. I haven't used oils in many years due to my allergies, but they have new products out there, so I'm giving this a try...
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 has an elf ear peeking out. I think she is most likely an elven 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 July. This is day 8.
This is a rough sketch.
