WIP Angel Fairy Art Original Painting Work in Progress + August Sketches, Sketch 5, Butterflies...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've worked on her attire and features.  Her hair is coming next.  I'm always excited to paint hair, it's one of my favorite parts of the painting.  This angel fairy is a little 4"x4" acrylic painting. 


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 two butterflies on flowers.  Their wings are very close together as each butterfly partakes of the flowers' nectar.  I'm unsure if I'll paint them or not, but I did enjoy sketching them.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August.  This is day 5.  

This is a rough sketch.
