Original Sunflower Flower Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints! August Sketches...



"Sunlight Sunbright" Original 18"x24" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Sunlight Sunbright". The original sunflower painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!  The large floral original has bold yellows against a soft blue sky and there is some light texture.  Usually blues, purples, and blacks are my favorite colors, but I find flowers of every hue lovely.  There's a whole world of beauty in flowers.  It was painted with acrylic paints.  The art has a realist impressionist feel.


Most of my art is also available on my website at www.lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is cute and fluffy animals with Little Bo Peep as a chaperone, you may see them here.

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has a strand of large pearls running through her windswept hair...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a angel fairy 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 August.  This is day 16.  

This is a rough sketch.
