WIP Rose Flower Floral Art Original Painting Work in Progress + August Sketches, Sketch 22, Angel...



In this original 4"x6" work in progress WIP painting of a rose, I've painted the petals.  I'm very close to being finished with the painting, I just need to accent some lights and play with the stem a little bit...  I love the soft lilac color of this purple rose.


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.



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has full beautiful hair and a compelling gaze.  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 have a couple of possible ideas for her, but time will tell...


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August.  This is day 22.

This is a rough sketch.

Purple rose - special meaning to me.
The maiden's face is refreshing

Thank you most kindly Valerie-Jael, Christine, Jennifer, Nicole, and Martin! Pink was actually the color of my reference, but I felt very drawn to the lilac color for this rose...
