Sketch of Big Eye Fairy, Art Sketches Daily, November 20, Sketchbook...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She seems to have a wise gaze.  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.   She is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.  I am using Col-Erase Prismacolor pencils, I like having the option to erase a bit.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in November.  This is day 20.

This is a sketch in colored pencils.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.  I'm not really a colored pencil artist but I am exploring something new for the sketchbook.  I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals.  I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing.

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

I could never get the Col-Erase Prismacolor to erase, so gave up on erasing and switched to pens lol

The paper and drawing colors make this so real

Thanks so much Valerie-Jael, Christine, Jennifer, and Martin. I think the lines have to be fairly faint for the col-erase to erase, I'm so impressed by people who sketch in ink...
