Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy, October 16, Art Sketches Daily + Show Information...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She looks like she is thinking of something that pleases her...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  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 October.  This is day 20.

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.


I'll be showing some Dia de los Muertos works and a Halloween painting at the "Day of the Dead Meets Halloween" art show at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum from 6 to 9 on Saturday.  The show runs through November 13th but is by appointment only.  I'l try to share the photograph that I took of the works framed up tomorrow...  Alex is also showing a piece, I'm not sure what time we'll be there, he has a Go Tournament this weekend, but I'll try to hop online on Saturday and post a quick update saying when we're on our way there.
